Once you've uploaded a file to dSpace it is then stored in dSpace's own asset store. However in the asset store the filename is stored as just a long list of numbers. (Not really useful)
Is there a way to control the output location of the data? E.g. Keep original file names, specify directory structure of documents, place data according to policies set?

Please, don't cross-post a single question to multiple lists. Choose
one that is appropriate and only try another one if you don't receive
an answer in about a week. See the etiquette link below.
There is no way to control the bitstream filenames. However, you can
look up the original names in the database. In the "bitstream" table,
the value in the “internal_id" column corresponds to the filename in
assetstore. The original filename is in the "name" column. Moreover,
because a large number of files ina single directory can cause
performance problems on most filesystems, the assesstore is divided up
by the first few characters of the filename. So dor example all
filenames starting with 123456 would be stored in the
[assetstore]/12/34/56/ directory. That's really all there is to it.
