I use date time as the file names coming off my digital camera, but I recently upgraded to a camera that has a 3-4 shot per second capacity, causing there to be many more files that have been created at the same second. Is there a way to add an incrementing number only on the files that have duplicate naming, and reset the counter at each new name conflict?

Yes, there is a way. In the settings dialog there is an option called Name Collision Rule. This option controls how Advanced Renamer should handle files with the same new name. Change it from fail to append incrementing number and you will experience the behavior you seek.

Just Use Duplicate File Finder from http://www.ashisoft.com/ to sort out every duplicate file from the original one within some clicks.

I have basically the same problem as person who started this thread.

Ideally I would like final result to look like this:

IMG2007.JPG -> 2015-01-04 08-10-10 A.jpg
IMG2008.JPG -> 2015-01-04 08-10-10 B.jpg
IMG2009.JPG -> 2015-01-04 08-10-10 C.jpg
IMG2010.JPG -> 2015-01-04 08-10-11.jpg
IMG2011.JPG -> 2015-01-04 08-10-12 A.jpg
IMG2012.JPG -> 2015-01-04 08-10-12 B.jpg
IMG2013.JPG -> 2015-01-04 08-10-12 C.jpg
IMG2014.JPG -> 2015-01-04 08-10-18.jpg
IMG2015.JPG -> 2015-01-04 08-10-21.jpg
IMG2016.JPG -> 2015-01-04 08-10-26.jpg

I tried selecting Append pattern as Name collision rule and entering <Inc Alpha>as pattern, but I get Too many files for <Inc Alpha> error. Am I doing something wrong or could you implement this.

Please accept my small donation and continue developing this great application. :)

I had a similar problem many times. The duplicate files are such that they my hard drives used to end up with bad sectors. Also, there was always a shortage of free space. I regularly use "Duplicate Files Deleter" when i feel that my computer is lagging. You should try it too and i'm sure that you won't regret it.
It can delete all duplicate files eg.-music,EXE. and same name files etc.

My problem is similar. I built a folder structure, copied in images with crappy names to the folders they belong in, then used advanced renamer to rename the images with folder name and increment number. Total success. Now I need to add a bunch more images with crappy names, but I don't want renamer to rename them again AND I would like increment number to continue from the highest number. Collision rules don't seem to cover this very well.

You have some Duplicate Files on your computer which hampers your memory space.
Just use "DuplicateFilesDeleter" software.
If you use this software you will be get comfortable.
