Renaming tool deleted my entire folder! Do not use.

I didnt even get a chance to start the renaming process when my entire folder of time lapse sequence images were deleted. I was selecting a destination folder for the newly named files and never saw my folder again! I have searched the entire computer including the recycle bin without success. Thanks for nothing.

Hi, Bulk Rename Utility does not do anything to files or folders until you click on "rename" and even in that case it does not delete files.

ok but when you want to get a new list of files you have the option to delete the files. Its not deleting from the program list but deleting from your harddisk. Once knowing this ist ok, but the first time you lose your files. They are in your trash.
