RoboImport - reimports duplicate files

In another thread Murat said that RoboImport could be incorporated into Daminion. I have purchased RoboImport (and RoboFolder ), but I have one big problem: RoboImport does not prevent reimport of duplicate files; it just checks if the files exists and then reimport the files and changes the names of the newly imported pictures / movies.

 

I import to a dynamic folder structure like this:

 

IMPORT\YEAR\YEAR-MONTH-DAY EVENT

 

And backup to folders like this:

 

EVENT\YEAR\YEAR-MONTH-DAY EVENT

 

In the EVENT folder I change EVENT to a description of the actual event, for example Birthday Peter.

 

My files are renamed like this (YearMonthDay_HourMinuteSecons_OrigninalName):

Instead of not importing duplicate files, RoboImport changes the name of my files to this:

 

20100509_111902_20100509_111902_IMG_0003.JPG.JPG.JPG

 

I wish RoboImport did not reimport duplicate files. As it is now, RoboImport is useless for me (unless I delete my source files after each import session). In short: If a (renamed) file exists, do not import or backup this file.
