Applicable to all files, or files of a specific type (e.g. .txt, .php, .jpg), within a user-specified folder, use the
Rename Files tool to:
- Keep the original filenames and extensions
but change their case to:
- Lower Case
- Filenames and extensions are converted to lower case.
- Upper Case
- Filenames are converted to upper case.
- Extensions can be upper or lower case.
- Title Case
- Filenames and extensions can be converted to title case.
- Filenames can be title case and extensions lower case.
- Filenames can be title case only after spaces.
- Filenames can be title case after non-alphanumeric symbols.
- Rename files completely or partially
using a sequence string which can be a:
The availability of numbering sequences is determined by the number of files being renamed.
- 1 Digit Sequence (1 - 9).
- 2 Digit Sequence (01 - 99).
- 3 Digit Sequence (001 - 999).
- 4 Digit Sequence (0001 - 9999).
- 5 Digit Sequence (00001 - 99999).
- 6 Digit Sequence (000001 - 999999).
- a, b, c Sequence (a - z).
- A, B, C Sequence (A - Z).
Sequences can be used:
- Once or mixed with each other (the maximum number of times a sequence can be used is 6).
- To provide the entire renaming information.
- In conjuction with:
- User-supplied strings.
- Original filenames.
- The following date formats:
- ddmm, ddmmyy, ddmmyyyy, mmdd, mmyy, mmddyy, mmddyyyy, yymm, yymmdd, yyyymm, yyyymmdd
- Shorten filenames
by removing characters from existing filenames.
- Filenames are shortened, not extensions.
- The maximum number of characters by which filenames can be shortened is 32.
This limitation can be overcome by shortening previously shortened filenames.
- Insert characters into filenames.
- Characters are added to filenames, not extensions, at the user-specified position.
- Reposition a user-specified 'prefix' in a filename
by moving the 'prefix':
- To the start of the filename.
- Before a parentheses-enclosed year in the filename.
- After a parentheses-enclosed year in the filename.
- To the end of the filename.
- Replace a string of characters in filenames.
For all files in a user-selected folder:
- If a filename contains a user-specified string of characters (A), the characters are replaced with another user-specified string of characters (B).
- If a filename does not contain the string of characters (A), it is not renamed.
- If the string of characters (B) is left blank, the string of characters (A) is deleted from the filename.
- Rename files using Regular Expressions
BDO Tools uses PCRE.
