Default How can I add "mirror" files to the download list

Hi,

Sometimes when I download something (e.g. on Xh**ster) some files will have the same name and look like they are the same - but they are NOT the same. Right now I do this:
1) Download the files in the link (example a set called "Hot")
2) Look after JDownloader reports "Finished".
3) If there are "mirror files" I mark them and go to Other->move to a new Package (I name the new download dir "1")
4) I go to the download folder and Move the files from "1" to the folder "Hot" (there are no name conflicts since they were moved to the new package)
5) In Jdownloader I reset the download list in the "1" package
6) start download again
7) Now a new set of files are downloaded to the "1" directory. They will have identical names as files in the "Hot" directory. I move the files to the "Hot" directory and confirm that I want to keep "both copies", although they are different.

It would be convenient if there was (maybe there is) a setting that will always download mirror files and keep both copies.

Example: **External links are only visible to Support Staff****External links are only visible to Support Staff**

The easy way would be to not add all the files to the same package, and have it automatically rename rather than skip on duplicate filenames.

Two advanced settings you may want to try:

Set "GeneralSettings: If File Exists Action" to Auto-Rename.

Set "GeneralSettings: Mirror Detection File Size Equality" to 10000

Either enable
Settings-Advanced Settings-GeneralSettings.forcemirrordetectionfilesizecheck
or change GeneralSettings.mirrordetectiondecision to SAFE
to prevent JDownloader recognize them as mirrors when they ar enot

and as explained by dabrown, enable autorename
to auto rename file when file already exists
