X29-Renamer for Mac1.6

21 November 2009

Renames long OS X file names to be compatible with OS 9.

What is X29-Renamer for Mac

X29-Renamer is created to take those OS X "unfriendly" long names and truncate them, including and respecting any file extension, to the 31 characters that OS 9 accepts. In addition, to avoid name conflicts, the program will uniquely number each file or folder before the extension up to a maximum of 999.

What's new in X29-Renamer

Version 1.6:
  • Added status text to main window showing the filename length setting. Basic testing on MacBook running Snow Leopard OS 10.6.2 so let us know if you find problems.

Please disregard my comments on May 8 2006. What had happened to my files is that it renamed the main folder and moved it up where I could not see the newly renamed folder. So I did not lose any files. It works as it said so my apologies to the Developer pmfine. My main folder was only 16 characters including spaces so I am not sure why it was renamed? It removed 9 characters and added 001 at the end. My new appraisal of this app is Features 3 stars Ease of use 5 stars Value (for those that my need this app) 5 stars Stabiliy 3 stars

I have been looking for an app that would check for file name being over 31 and when I saw this app I was ready to try it out. So after testing it and seeing that the app worked as it said it would I've been using it. Today I used it on 3.5 gigs of work files and when it was DONE all my files were gone. This app deleted all my files so this app is in the trash. It is not worth losing 2 weeks of 15 peoples work in 30 seconds. I give this app 1 star for trying to solve this problem but for losing all my files thats a minus -3 stars. It's a good thing we have a daily backup of our server.

Working in the print industry, we run into this long filename problem continuously. I've found a couple renaming tools that will truncate filenames, but setting them up is a real pain. I'm only rating features a 1 because this only does what it was built to do. It does one thing VERY well. I tried this with a couple-hundred files finally and it did exactly as advertised, and in a very logical manner. Simply drag and drop, then get back to work. Thanks a million.
