Rename folder name based on file name.

Postby peter » Wed Jan 18, 2017 12:12 pm


I need some help, inside folder "A" there are many folders named like 01.MP3,02.MP3,03.MP3.... and also inside folder "A" there are many pdf files named with their actual names, 01.Filename.pdf,02.Filename.pdf,03.Filename.pdf...

Is it possible to rename the folders using the PDF file names and copy the pdf file into the folder? I.E., folder 01.mp3 will become folder 01.Filename and the file 01.Filename.pdf will go to the folder 01.Filename.

I really appreciate any help.

This program really can't create directory's or move separate files dynamicly. You might do it in the java part. You'll need a Com. license form the dev. I'm sure he'd help you write the code also.

Or you can look for a Renamer that can also create folders or move files dynamicly while renaming. I know of at least 2 off the top of my head right now that can do this.
One such is a Master. hint, hint
The ones i'm talking about can create a folder and move the file inside it all at one go. So you'd be better off just getting rid of the folders already their.

I'm pretty sure the Dev has plans to add this function, but so far, we're still on hold.

Yes, creating folders while renaming is a feature we will add. Example rename "filename-text.pdf" into "text\filename.pdf" where text it a new folder that if it does not exist is created first. :)
