I also do not rename my files. I simply place them in folders that are dated with the year first, then the actual dates of the shoot then a description (i.e. 2008 - 11-13-08 - Ducks on Lake). My camera recently hit the DSC_9999 number and started renumbering from DSC_0001. This seems like a silly question, but I need to ask anyway. If I have more than one file named, for instance, DSC_0001 and they are each in different folders, is there a risk of one being copied over another when copying and backing up files? I am guessing there is not a risk as long as they are in different folders. Am I correct?
