Renaming Picture File Folders

Postby scg0557 » Tue Mar 21, 2017 8:24 pm

I am trying to use the Utility to rename the picture folders that I have on my computer. The current format is month-day-year (e.g., 1-10-2010 or 10-10-2010). I would like to chage the format to year-month-day (e.g., 2010-01-10 or 2010-10-10) having trouble figuring out how to set that up on the utility to make that work in batch. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. :roll:

1.
In the folder tree select the parent directory.

2.
Filters (12)
Folders: selected
<Nothing else in Filters should be selected>

3.
RegEx (1)
Match: ^(\d{2}|\d)-(\d{2})-(\d{4})$
Replace: \3-\1-\2

4.
Select all the folders in the main window and check before renaming.

After renaming the folders and resetting BRU, to make the single digit months into 2 digits:

Filters (12)
Mask: \d{4}-\d-\d{2}
RegEx: Selected
Folders selected
<This will filter the folders so only the folders with single digit months show>

Add (7)
Insert: 0
at pos: 6
