MRT: Search & Replace through directories only

Post by *EIKA »

Hi all!

I want to do mass directory rename by using Multi-rename tool. Sadly, I don't see Directory option in Search & Replace area. But I need to replace all the spaces in all directories, recursively as deep as possible, but excluding the files.

Is there any way? Thanks!

Search for the files, or in your case directories, you want to rename, feed them to listbox and then call the MRT.

Open the search (Alt+F7), limit to directories by attributes on the tab "Advanced", and start the search. When it's done, feed the results to listbox via the corresponding button in the lower right corner. Then mark all result items via Ctrl+A and call the MRT (Ctrl+M) to do the renaming/replacement.

HTH
