Send to Kindle question

I have two scheduled recipes that I run each morning. When I plug in my Kindle, the send-to-device automatically runs, but occasionally one of them will not update on the Kindle.

If I go to the Kindle and delete the prior day's content (eg, New York Times Top Stories, which is one of the recipes with this problem), and then do a send-to-device again, it works.

Is there a setting that I'm missing, something like "Don't overwrite"? I've checked here in the forums as well as in the Prefs in Calibre, but I don't see anything.

Thanks in advance...

It shouldn't be overwriting in any case, as the date is art of the title of the book and hence the generated file name on the device.

So any idea why it won't update the kindle? Is there a log or something I can look at to see if something is failing?

I think maybe what's happening is that it's updating the NYT subscription on the kindle, but it doesn't change the date? I will check again tomorrow, but maybe that's it.

I have in calibre NYT dated today (2/15), and on the kindle it's dated 2/14, but the content itself seems to be current.

/Volumes/Kindle/documents/News/New York Times Top Stories - calibre.mobi

Just to add more info -- it actually looks fine on the Kindle, has the current date and all the stories are up-to-date.

What was throwing me off is that in Calibre, it still has yesterday's date listed.
