Autorename on copy/move

Post by *sbertolucci » 2018-06-09, 10:39 UTC

Hi, I know it's late for the next release, but I would like to suggest a little improvement when on copy/move the target folder already has files with the same name.
This happens to me often when I deploy to customers new .dlls or .config files.
I would like to have somewhere an option to set how the autorename will be done.
For me the optimal rename for existing files in the target directory would be something like filename.YYYY.MM.DD.[C] where [C] is a counter in case of several copies in the same day.
Also, the classical autorename should have a format option so that instead of (2) you could get (02) and so on.

I would also like an option to set autorename the default behaviour in copy/move

Thanks

There already are some options:

Help for wincmd.ini settings:
AutoRenameMode=3 Determines how files are auto-renamed when copying or in multi-rename tool. Sum of:
1: append number (x) serparated by space, e.g. name (2).txt instead of name(2).txt
2: start number at (2), not (1), e.g. name.txt, name (2).txt etc.
