Archive fails to move original file if it already exists in the archive directory

Jan 26 at 9:32 AM
Just started using MCEBuddy2 with Plex DVR and came a cross an issue where Plex recorded the same program a second time (on a +1hr channel). Anyway the result of this is that MCEBuddy was asked to convert a file which had the same file name as one that had previously been converted.

This causes an error because it fails to move the original file out of the Plex .grab folder:
ERROR> 2017-01-26T01:29:11 MCEBuddy.Engine.Core --> Unable to move original file \\LIME\Plex\TV\.grab\ad8d7b374aa0afb10086655ff244226933b47d37\The Big Bang Theory (2007) - S02E23 - The Monopolar Expedition.ts to Archive folder \\LIME\Plex\ArchiveTVWithADS
ERROR> 2017-01-26T01:29:11 MCEBuddy.Engine.Core --> Error : System.IO.IOException: Cannot create a file when that file already exists.

   at System.IO.__Error.WinIOError(Int32 errorCode, String maybeFullPath)
   at System.IO.File.InternalMove(String sourceFileName, String destFileName, Boolean checkHost)
   at MCEBuddy.Util.FileIO.MoveAndInheritPermissions(String source, String destination)
   at MCEBuddy.Engine.Core.MonitorThread()
Is it possible to add a postfix to any such collisions, or optionally replace the file at the move destination?

in the conversion settings expert options check the option for Check if file already exists, it won't convert duplicate shows.
