I've just started using my D3200 since replacing my old CoolPix 8800.

Nikon Transfer 2 seems very useful in moving files to dated folders, however, the next time I take pictures the file numbering sequence begins at 0001 again. This means I have several DSC_0001's etc which will be a nightmare if I combine them into other folders (and potentially overwrite them).

I have looked through the NT2 settings but cannot find where to tell it to maintain the sequence (like what happens when I move files off the old camera using Windows (file) Explorer.)

Thanks for you help!
