Powerful batch file renamer.

Overview

ff_rename is a very powerful renaming tool that you need, if you need to rename a large number of files.

These are the key features:

  • simple / expert mode
  • very powerful selecting / unselecting tools

  • uppercase / lowercase filenames
  • trim filenames to a certain length (start or middle or end of target area) or by removing spaces or vocals
  • rename using current date or a counter
  • find and replace strings
  • find and replace single chars
  • find and replace single chars with index based search
  • most tokens can select target area (basename, extension or complete filename

It does the job... but it's very basic! Lots of features are not easy to understand, for example how do i clear a list and do another batch? I had to quit and relaunch each time... Also, the "read subdirectories" function doesn't work for me. I dragged a folder full of folders and only the first one was opened by the app... The Icon looks awful.

I could not figure how it works to rename files with number sequentially...

What a sweet little app- and free! Yes, I found the interface a little unusual: I couldn't figure out how to get a new window then saw you just drag a new folder over. And I wanted to remove the word 'alias' from the end of a huge number of aliases, and it worked very well when I told it that 'alias' is an extension. But so what? saved me a bunch of work and obviously a labor of love. I appreciate the work. And the price :-) I'd like to give it a 5, but I know the developer agrees there's more work, and that is the only reason I gave it less than 5. Did I mention it's free?

It works, at least for basic file renaming. I haven't tried any of the advanced features, but this app deserves a five-star rating for having no limitations, being free, and working.
