Negative filter

Postby procyon82 » Sat Sep 10, 2016 2:49 pm

Hi,

I am converting files through as script, but sometimes the conversion fails, but I wouldn't know unless I check every single folder.
I was wondering if there is a way to show a list of folders by saying 'if this type of file is missing in a folder, show me the list of folders'?

Another way that isn't as foolproof but could still help me filter out bad conversions is if I could create a list of folders that have fewer than let's say 3 files in them. Is that possible?

Hi, you will need a powershell script for that, it cannot be done with BRU. thanks

Everything 1.4.0.713b Beta

To find folders with 3 files:
> childfilecount:3

To find folders with < 3 files:
> childfilecount:<3

You're running the GUI from a script?

Maybe BRU could simply set an exit code for the status of the last performed Rename operation, that the batch file could then check?
Not foolproof, but at least it might provide some indication that not every rename completed successfully.

Code: Select all
bulkrenameutilityexe.exe
if errorlevel 1 (
   echo Not all Rename operations were completed successfully.
   pause
)
