links.forEach(function(link) {
    var filePath = getPath(link.getDownloadPath());
    var i = 0;

    while (getPath(destinationFolder + "/" + filePath.getName()).exists()) {
        newPath = getPath(link.getDownloadPath().toString().replace(/(.+)(\..+)/, "$1" + i + "$2"));
        filePath = newPath;

I think this is very good. Thank you. I understand better now. Replace with regex is very clever.

2 Questions I have:
  1. Is there more docu to understand better return of methods? For example if I put
    var myString = myFilePath.getPath();
    Is output with "\" or with "/" or has it slash at end. Or when I put
    var myString = myFilePath.getExtension();
    is output with "." or without? That is make it more easy to know better what exactly is return not only return type. Then more easy to use and put back together.
  2. Code:
    newPath = getPath(link.getDownloadPath().toString().replace(/(.+)(\..+)/, "$1" + i + "$2"));
    Is link.getDownloadPath() not string type already? Why you put ".toString()"? I think that is the only thing I cannot understand now.
All other is so very good that I want to my head for better thinking.

Only thing I must change is
replace(/(.+)(\..+)/, "$1" + i + "$2"));
replace(/(.+)(\..+)/, "$1 (" + i + ")$2"));
then it is like Windows Explorer original rename.
