I did sudo su in gnome-terminal then started gprename
and navigated to /usr/local/share/stuff/pictures/New
Pictures/single/ I started to batch rename over 400
files... to single001.jpg etc. it did it and it looked
successful. Later I find out it DELETED 1/5 of the
collection! And I can't get them back, I'm very
unhappy... I backed up and I did the rename again and
it kept depleting the pictures until I had 125 left
then it wouldn't delete them anymore.

    Can not reproduce the bug. Please make sure you are using
    the most recent version.

    This happens if you have for instance: song1.mp3, song2.mp3,
    song4.mp3, song5.mp3, song6.mp3 and then run gprename again
    to fill the number gap using the same exact naming scheme
    then it will start to overwrite files such that only
    song1.mp3, song2.mp3, song3.mp3 remain and the others are
    deleted.

    I have expireced the same thing when having files named:
    song1.mp3, song2.mp3, song4.mp3, song5.mp3, song6.mp3 and
    when using gprename to fill in the gap in the numbers while
    using the same naming scheme. gprename will overwrite the
    files in such a way that will leave only song1.mp3,
    song2.mp3, song3.mp3 left after it's done.

    Indeed, it's a bug. I am sorry for that. It will be fixed in
    the next release.

    Thx for fixing, otherwise gprename is a great product if
    using gnome! I think I'll find out how to make an e-build
    for Gentoo one of these days so that I can put it in the
    tree... with the newer version including the bug fix of
    course :-)

    ok, I have the same bug. create a directory, and inside
    create those files :

    touch rename1.png
    touch rename2.png
    touch rename4.png
    touch rename5.png

    now run gprename and do a numerical rename starting at 1,
    increment 1, without zero auto fill, with:
    insert before numbers : rename
    and after : .png

    the preview looks ok, but after renaming, you have only the
    following files :
    rename1.png rename2.png and rename3.png
