Question [EventScripter] Download list to prevent downloading files already present

I download and collect videos on different topics and move and store them in subfolders. I use JDownloader2 to download them. When the download finished, I clear the entry from the JD2 download list tab.

Since there are so many files, I can't always remember if I already downloaded a given video (or picture, pdf, txt). Is there a way that JD2 can check if a given file has already been downloaded and alert the user, even if the file is stored in a different subfolder and already cleared from JD2 download list tab?

As an example, using youtube-dl and it has such a feature:
youtube-dl --download-archive downloaded-urls.txt

It's extremely helpful, because it allows the user to move the files and the program still knows, not to download given file again. Maybe JD2 could keep track of (1) downloaded urls and/or (2) exact filenames and match them before download? Like a text file where is stores the information, one per line, and the user could choose this file.

there is no official way but just recently a "Download History" EventScripter Script was created by a user.
You might want to ask in the thread to find it.
