I absolutely agree and this is long demanded power feature, see

But it's not that simple because most ppl want this *archive/history* to work like the current system, so JDownloader informs/shows
that you've already a file or not. So this implementation needs to be *fast* and consume less memory than current *workaround* with keeping
links in list. Of course you could just dump those into a database, but this would just create another dependency that might not be available in all supported environments and ppl easily forget that databases are only *fast* if the index mostly fits into memory.
