Customer Question
I use Lightroom CC...

I use Lightroom CC to import my photos. I give each file a unique name. Ex. Pictures>2018>18-05-cats. I also have LR set up to automatically back up to an external hard drive. However, the files on the external don't import with the unique name. They show as downloaded on then the date. How do I set up the auto back up to use the same unique file name and tree as on my computer?

Technician's Assistant: When did you last update Lightroom?

About 2 weeks ago. This has been an issue with every version of LR I have used.

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your Lightroom?

Obviously, I don't know where to start. I have never been able to find any information on google on how to set up to save to the tree I want.
