windows UF issues

I installed a windows universal forwarder, to send some txt files to indexer.
those txt files are named with timestamp, say 20140707120100_xx.txt.
i'd like splunk to eat every newly generated txt file, nomatter if in 'default crclength' is the same content.
because a new file maybe just exactly the same with the last one, except a last line...

i found 'crcSalt = *.txt' does not work, and 'initCrcLength' will be too large a number to make effect.
What should i do to force splunk eat files with same and very very long head?

You can set this to make Splunk include the filename in the CRC calculation:

crcSalt = <SOURCE>

That's literally <SOURCE>, it'll substitute the filename itself in each case.
