Sequence that resets each day
« on: January 31, 2009, 01:46:55 PM »

I ingest with the following method:

Copy Photos: Into dated folder then folder with name
Folder name "Disk-"
Auto increment folder suffix: "01"

...which gives me a structure like this:

20090131 > Disk-01
20090131 > Disk-02

The only thing is at the start of each day I have to manually retype the suffix so it starts at "01" again. It's not a big deal, but is there a way I could automate this? Note that it's at the end of the computer's day I'm talking about, nothing to do with when the images were shot. I want each card to stay in it's own folder, under a daily folder. Is there some kind of variable along the lines of "sequence that gets reset at the end of each day"? I guess one would want it to reset at midnight whatever the computer time is (or ideally a specified time of day). Or some other way to achieve similar?
