i just want to number my files

Postby casteroil » Tue Jul 04, 2017 10:02 am

i have zip files with names that are very long and the files inside are identically very long so when i try to extract the files i get a lot of errors.
how do i simply rename all the zip files to incrementally numbered files while keeping the .zip? i.e. 1 through 50000.

ok, i must have worded that poorly, lets try again.

how do i simply number all my files in just one directory?

1.zip
2.zip
3.zip
4.zip

etc....

i have tried many things in both filters(12) and numbering (10).
i must be overlooking something simple.

Hi did you use Name(2) set to remove? That removes the current name then you can add numbering , thanks
