Hi,

I also have these issues with thr error code 101 and i hace abolutely no idea,
where this is coming from. I did try to rename over 300 Folders with subfolder
and about 250 got renamed, but 50 didnt make it...
so I took a single folder, which was mot renamed and tried to rename just this
one folder without and subfolders, still got the error 101

I am able to change the name manually using the explorer. I am using the latest version on
an win 7 PC 64 bit.

Be thankful for any suggestions..

Thank you


Kept on trying, but no positive result. i can change the name of the folder if there aren't any
subfolders involved. As soon as i put in a subfolder i am getting these error messages.
i tried checking and unchecking the "add root folder" and "add subfolders" and even moved the top
folder to the bottom an vice versa. alwas error 101

i am clueless!!

You get this error when the rename is rejected by Windows. This is normally because you don't have the needed user rights to perform the rename or because a file in a subfolder is open or otherwise locked by a running program.

No..No File was opened or in use and I did open advanced renamer with as an admin.... BUT..if i open AR as an Admin, drag and drop doesn't work anymore, and I still get the error message. If they were in use, I wouldn't be able to change them in the explorer. AR is kind of blocking folders. because if I want to change the name by hand (explorer) i get the message, that the file is in use, if I close AR, then it just works fine.

Thats my experience. Advanced renamer itself is what blocks the folder or file being renamed. I have a folder structure that I want to perform the same operation on both folder names and the files within. I do the files first all fine. But then cant change the folders. Nothing elese is locking the folders other than AR. If I do the folders first than I cant do the files. I have to close the PC (not just AR) and restart for it to work, either using AR or doing it manually. Very frustrating. To repeat nothing else other than AR is locking the items

Hi

I had the same issue. Some files on my main drive fail to rename with error code 101.
On my backup drive, the same files rename without an issue.
When I compared the security settings in the properties of the disk drive, I noticed a additional user on the backup drive. (Authenticated Users with Read, Write and Modify permissions)

I add this same user and permissions to my main drive (Group or user names) and apply it to all folders. Now I can rename all files without any error.

suggestion to all:

i you have error 101, ànd you are sure you have all the required rights, file not in use etc
do check if AR is sandboxed.
i have comodo anti virus . AR is (now:was) sandboxed and when applying a modification on a *share* like \\10.0.2.7\Downloads-temp\.... i got the error 101.
however when i mapped a local drive to this location and used thàt location i had no problem at all

Antivirus can be such a bitch. I always recommend to only use a minimum of antivirus and similar protection software. I have seen cases where anti virus makes the computer less secure.

I had an similar issue, but Windows was also unable to rename the files. It was acting like the file was open by someone. They weren't. The files I had an issue with were all .doc files. I had to open each one and close it then AR worked.
