MultiFileRenamer is a tool to easily rename multiple files according to multiple rules. These rulesets can be used in different directories, can be stored for later usage and the results can be previewed. Written in C++ for Windows platforms.
NOTE: I recently received reports of problems on Windows 7. However I switched over to Linux since Windows XP, and have not experience whatsoever with Windows Vista or newer versions. As a result I will not be able to make any changes to this project. If you wish to improve on some small thing, feel free to contact me. You need to be able to compile using Borland C++ Builder and have access to Windows 7.
It is a very useful program. You had me at first glimpse. I only have a couple of suggestions: 1. An option to rename without the extension being included. Perhaps placing a tick box in the Options menu to exclude the extension from being influenced by the changes. 2. A multi select option when selecting files that you (don't) want to include in the renaming. 3. Sorting option in the rename window - that is, to be able to sort the files according to name, type, size...So that it is easier to rename them. For instance, I had the problem of not wanting to rename the subtitles, but they had the same names as the video files. So, it was easier for me to exit the program, open Explorer and find them, and then take them out of the folder or something like that. 4. Start/End as positions in Insert and Delete functions. For instance, I have different length of gibberish at the end of each files name. So I want to delete from point 25 till the end. This is, of course, impossible. (I mean, I can erase all, including the extension, and then adding it, but to be honest, it's an annoying thing, and slows me down quite a bit. Also, in Insert - if I have different files that I wish to end with the same text, I can't place a position or after text, seeing as files differ with the ends of their names. I hope this constructive suggestion will help you better the program, because I believe it has great potential. I am very happy with it. Thanks in advance.
Just what i needed, very easy to use.
Very useful program ! Great Work!
