File Names in Calibre

When I save the files I have converted to a folder, Calibre appends the word unknown and a number to the end of the file name.

Is there a way to stop this from happening?

Right now the only thing I can do is go in with Windows Explorer and change the file names by hand.

Thanks Jim

I guess I don't understand. I set the title to the proper wording and the
Authur to blank. And I still get the added unknown and convert number.

OK, Three or four spaces equals blank and the unknown goes away.
But the convert number stays.
