different file name

[ Edited ]

Hi i have a Maxify MB2150, everytime i copy a document it always saves the file with the same file name or number in this case.

If i move the PDF file i have just copied to a folder it always comes up with File already exists do i want to replaace, skip etc

how do i change the setting so it assigns a new file number for each scanned pdf?
