When Link Grabber combines files packages (assemblies?) if two links would save files to the same directory and filename, the files are normally considered mirrors.

However, if the files to be saved are not the same size, they cannot be mirrors and should not be combined. If both are archive volumes with the same archive stub name, then this is a Permanent Error, similar to File Not Found (the user must act or the files cannot be downloaded).

If the links are to individual files, then the package names should be changed by adding a numeral (01, 02, ...).

If the size of the file corresponding to a link cannot be determined by Link Grabber, then the files should be considered mirrors, as this is the most common situation.
