I rename only modified pictures. Otherwise I keep them on their original names.
> Also, Sony software automatically places pictures taken in new folders by date so even if they are the same number, they are seperate.
Usually I use Explorer for transferring and sorting photos.

I don't. I _do_ have sorted my pics by years and occasions. What I'm saying then? I am saying that I'd prefer have all the 5 digits instead 4. I don't get it why there is 5th digit in the filename if it can't be used.a
Thanks for tips anyway.
