    My problem is that after deleting a file from DCIM folder after taking a backup on my PC (the folder where the pictures clicked from the phone are stored); when I click a new picture it is stored with a filename of the deleted file.
    e.g if I hv stored Image006 on my PC and deleted it from the SD card, a new image will have the name Image006 although I have an Image035
    So then wen i backup the images again i hv problem of images having the same name.
    Is there a way to prevent this from happening i.e the new filename should always be the one after my last image.
    Also I dnt know if this happens only in Desire or in all phones.

    Strange, this doesn't happen with mine. I copied some photo's off last night, just took another and the numbering has continued from the end (Image129).

    If you use Windows though, can't you use the Photo & Camera wizard to rename them to something else as they are copied to the PC?

    Also, I use a great piece of freeware called Irfanview on the PC. It's a very useful image manipulation tool for resizing / cropping. Also it has a batch rename function where you can rename a selected group of pictures with a custom pattern (2010_### for example).

    You can also just put them in a folder with the date as the name. Helps to organise them too!
