I enjoyed the program because of the free and features, special as script (very simple) and not platform requirements. I have a few ideas as follows:
01. Rename of the folders.
- Can add option selected subfolder to the list (as rename files mode).
- Rename the folder including the parent directory, not the 101 error as now. Course supports the undo batch.
02. There may be options don't analysis files (because easy need is renamed normal). For picking large number of files, the file analysis that could cause crashes.
03. Have version in Linux?
Final, I use Google Translate and more.

The thing you link to has nothing to do with Advanced Renamer present on this site. My Advanced Renamer is not written in python. Even though I love to use Ubuntu, I don't plan to make a Linux based version of Advanced Renamer anytime soon. It is too much work.

Hello, I'm a new Advanced Renamer user and first I would like to thank Kim for his great program and dedication.

I have a problem while renaming subfolders : error code 101.
I'm bouncing this old thread because I have the same issue and despite several other threads about this same issue, it has never been addressed or resolved.

Please check the following onedrive folder:
- Image 2016-04-15.png : this is my folder structure. When I start a new graphic job, I always start by these new empty folders.
- Image 2016-04-15 (1).png : I always get this 101 error, only on parent folders. In the folders list, I have tried to move the subfolders on top of the list before clicking the "start batch" button, but it doesn't work.
- Image 2016-04-15 (7).png : I tried to reload in the list the folders that couldn't be renamed.
- Image 2016-04-15 (8).png : The 2 parent folders cannot be renamed even though the child folders aren't in the list anymore, even if I reload them again and again, and even if I close then restart Advanced Renamer! Manually renaming them does work in Windows File Explorer, which proves the files are not used by some process, except maybe the Advanced Renamer process?

Which leads me to think how Advanced renamer should process subfolders:
1) First it should automatically order folders from the deepest sublevel to the top parent level.
2) It should rename from top to bottom of the list
3) Each time AR meets a higher folder level, it should "free" the folders of any process, then rename them.

Just my 2 cents :)

See you soon,

First I would like to thank the author of this superior software. " THANK YOU "
Many people would like to think that this application does a simple task.
All you have to do is try to seamlessly do what "Advanced Renamer" does in the
Command Line Interpreter of most operating systems, to realize there are times when it becomes very difficult to perform these task.
This is absolutely the best software for the job I have personally used.

Also I have just successfully used this software in the WINE environment installed in PCLINUXOS Full Monty Edition
