New to this and need help

Postby Jinnoy » Wed Oct 09, 2019 10:05 am

Hello everyone,,
C:\Whitson>brc32 /minlen:14 /insert:whit:start /autonumber:Start:1Increment:1Mod
e(P|)Seperator:Base:10Pad:3 /nofolders
The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.

This is the command I am trying to run. I have the brc32 exe in the same folder as the files I am trying to rename. What am I missing? I am basically trying to take any file in this folder with 14 characters or more and rename them to a file with whit001 and then sequencially from there.

if i'm understanding what you're looking to do....

Code: Select all
brc32  /minlen:14  /removename  /insert:whit:0  /autonumber:1:1:S:---:10:3

you want to remove the name, entirely
replace it with "whit"
/autonumber, you type the wanted parameters rather then the field names themselves

also, you may want to add /nodup (even if it may not be needed)
