Windows 'Scan to Folder' Software, Any Suggestions?

I'm currently looking for a free/low cost Windows application that can interface with the TWAIN drivers of a scanner, to simply scan to a folder.   I.e. using an ADF scanner, I can put 20 sheets, have them scanned and saved to a specific location as 0000001.TIF, 00000002.TIF and so on.  Then put another 20 sheets on and have it do the same, using the next consecutive file name.

I've found lots of software that tries to OCR, index or process the images, but that's not what I need.  Just run the scanner, and save to a folder.  Any suggestions?

Paperport software does this automatically in the setup.  Once you set up a "scan to folder or desktop option, it is there, just drag the documents on the icon, and walk away.

If you buy the Visioneer One-touch USB scanner, this software comes FREE with it, and the one touch is even better for what you want, because you can program a button on the front of the scanner, to "scan to" the directory you want.  It is all in the Paperport software.  The scanner is only $69, well worth getting.
