I am copying scanned pdf's from paperport to a mapped drive. The naming for the pdf's are set in paperport as "date(1-X)" for every stack of scanned documents. If I scan in 20 documents in the morning then they will be named date(1-20). They are then transferred to a mapped drive on our network. If I again scan 20 different documents later in the same day then the names of those files will be the same as the documents I scanned in the morning, at which time the files from the morning will be overwritten. I need some means of renaming the files so that they are not overwritten. Below is the script that I am using. I am not an expert with scripts. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

COPY "C:\Users\XXXXXXXX\Documents\My PaperPort Documents\*.*" "C:\Transfer Backup"
Robocopy "C:\Users\XXXXXXXX\My Documents\My PaperPort Documents" Z:\ /MOV /S /r:3 /w:3 /log+:"C:\Transfer Logs\Transferlog.txt"
