Same filename obliterated both files

Forgive me if this has been reported already, but I had a download that had been stuck on 87% for weeks, so I found another copy of the same file (only larger) elsewhere. The filename in both torrents was exactly the same.

When the newer torrent completed, the completed file was nowhere to be found. I checked and the older torrent's data and it was likewise MIA.

The files were not duplicates. Only their names were identical.

I ended up deleting both torrents (+data) and am currently downloading the newer version all over again.

I'm using build 3.3 with 64bit Win7 Home.

I guess when I wrote:

That wasn't specific enough.

It was' date=' but it will overwrite that file.

You can save it with another name, or in another folder.[/quote']

I am aware of that. I just didn't realize both files had the same name until it was too late.

But it DIDN'T simply "overwrite" the older file. BOTH files were lost!

I think that qualifies as a "bug" that needs fixing.
