|One line summary|| The problem is that sometimes there are gaps in a numerical, alphabetical or alpha numerical naming sequence, and/or out-of-sequence files within a set of digital files.
|Detailed description|| Projects creating digital files will either use a programme to name their files, or will do so manually. Sometimes problems occur with the sequences. For example, files will be mis-numbered or letters transposed. Sometimes this will be a simple human error. Or, it may indicate that an item has been copied twice, that items are missing, or that items have been mis-filed. We need to identify gaps or anomolies within folders of files that have been assigned sequential file names.
where file number 3 is missing and file 004 will be moved to the front of the sequence because it is missing a "0"
Does CMS_002 belong here?
