Advanced Renamer tries to figure out why a file might not be renamed correctly. When there is no indication of not being able to rename a file and it still can't be renamed the Unknwn Error message is displayed. This is most oftens means that the file is in use or is located in a folder where you don't have write access, like on a cd-drive or in the program files folder.

Hello, I jsut tried this out and got the same problem.

If i try to rename the folder while the renamer is open i get access denied, file is in use error.

if i close the renamer i can rename the fodler by hand. its happening to 25% of the files i want to rename :)

i am doing this on an 2003 server and i have full ownership/access to the files.

You cannot rename a folder when a file in the folder or a child folder is in use by a program. There might be other circumstances where you cannot rename a folder due to similar issues. This is normal Winodws behavior.

i have the same problem ... the problem is "Advanced Renamer" is the program that hold on a windows drive the folder in use. on a NAS folder the same function is ok.
