rename files to parent folder name

Postby joepineapples90 » Tue May 25, 2021 11:30 am

Ok, so followed a YT video and managed to do this ok. However, just wondering if its possible to do this in one go with several individual folders & filenames, rather than having to repeat the process of clicking in each folder, one at a time.

thanks.

BRU, on its own, typically deals with tree structures.

If you were to drag wanted files (from potentially anywhere & everywhere) into BRU, that should allow you to rename from diverse parents outside of any single directory tree.


(There is nothing better in finding files then Everything [which you'd then drag into BRU].)
