When Trim was implemented all legacy subject files imported into Trim that began with "P" had to be changed to "Q" prior to conversion/import as there was some reason Trim would not accept them ( before my time so I cannot expand on the reason why "P" had to be changed ) .
But Since then we have been able to re-number all the "Q" records back to "P" files successfully most of the time ........
I am currently doing some sentencing maintenance on legacy files and need to change more of the "Q" files pack to "P".
However when I try, I am getting a message stating that I have not changed both "record" and "expanded" numbers which I have and it only seems to be Record numbers that have a "P" and a "2" in them such as P20\2 or P20\1
For example when I try to change Q20/2 to P20/2 I get a message box
Please take care when changing a record number. You must ensure that your new number conforms with the number pattern for its record type and has a correct expanded number
If the expanded number does not conform then sorting by record number will no produce the dsired result ......
I then Hit ok on that window and I get the following error window:
Record number P20 has already been used
Now I am definately using P20/1 not P20 .. I have tested this with other file and it works fine its just this P20/x files that are causing errors
When searching for a recordnumber 'TEST' and it doesn't exist, then TRIM will search for: 'TEST-01','TEST/01','TESTV01','TESTP01','TEST#01','TEST.01','TEST:01','TEST\01','TEST[v01]' and return those results.
So maybe, when renaming, the same search is applied and TRIM "thinks" it's a duplicate?
You may want to view the Activity Log Pane Dataset tab to see what TRIM is actually checking for.

Are your record numbers based on the Classifications?
I ask because I just recently ran into this same exact thing (and the rec numbers were being based on the classifications). I ended up recreating the records from "scratch" in order to let the system assign the numbers, I couldn't work around it.
