Rename a large number of files based on their folder name

Postby Sojumonkey » Mon Aug 08, 2016 5:44 pm

Hi all, so I've found some posts that I thought were the same thing I was trying to do, but aren't for some reason or another.

I've got about 1200 media files inside folders

==Films

====Name of a Film (year)

======Name of a Film.mp4, mkv, m4v, avi
======Name of a Film.url

Basically I want to rename all the files inside to include the year (that's already in their folder name) in their filename. I tried a few of the recommendations i found via search, but those are just renaming my "name of the film (year)" folders to match the "Films" directory which is not what I am looking to do.

thanks a lot for any help

Actual examples; before & after, would help.

Anyhow, depending on how things are laid out & what you're after...

Code: Select all
9:Append Folder Name
Name: Prefix
Sep: {i'd go with something "unique"}
Level: 1


Might do it, depending.

Then also, depending, after the dates are in there, you might want to separately move the date about. And I'm thinking that by choosing the Prefix & "unique" separator, that might make it easier to do.
