[SOLVED] change multiple files name in multiple folders at one shot

Post by *fdsazcw123 »

hi, need some help here. much appreciated

i have multiple folders, folder name is a, b, c, etc.

what i want is rename files in these folders with the parent folder name.

for example, files in "folder a" would be renamed to "a-1, a-2, a-3", files in "folder b" would be renamed to "b-1, b-2, b-3"

right now, i can rename one folder at a time with [P] function in multi rename tool of tc.

but, is it possible to change multiple files name in multiple folders at one shot.

thanks, and stay safe.

You cannot reset counter by folder !
Using naming colision TC > 9

Use BranchView for selected folder [ctrl]+[shift]+B
Select all files and rename
What you can do is to use naming colision to have almost what you need.
You rename to [P]-1 in Name field
Accept automatic renaming.

reload will not work due to a bug.

Select all files
rename using
[N] in name field
check regex and use

Code: Select all

Search For:1 \((.+)\)$
Replace with: $1
You will have counter by folder and extension..
ie in folder a : a-1.txt a-2.txt ... a-99.txt a-1.ini a-1.jpg
