In my method list I have one method - Add, to add the following at index 1 -

<Img year>.<img month>.<img day>.<img hour>.<img min>.<img sec>-

I used this rule to rename many JPG files copied from my camera. It works as it should for the first files in the list, but for the rest it does not. The file is renamed but the EXIF field info is not inserted. So that only ".....-" in front of the existing file name.

These files do have the EXIF fields in them, but for some reason AR fails to extract them.

Using 3.77.

Sure, here is one -

All the files are straight from my Sony wx350 camera, which puts the EXIF data into the images. So the problem doesn't seem to be with any one image. Rather, AR seems to have a problem with extracting and inserting the date/time data into the filenames, in large batch operations. The batch operation starts out all right - the date/time info is inserted into the new file name for the first x files to be processed (not sure what x is). But at some point AR hits a problem, and for the remaining files yet to be processed, it fails to extract or insert the date/time data into the new file names. I think that when I processed about 100 jpg files, the problem occurred after the first 50 files or so.

I've tried with this picture, and it works for me. ( https://drive.google.com/open?id=1DTmt3Jiw0G2aUo T80jqdM45CKbVNCLrV )

If you want, you may upload all images (zipped folder). Then I will try with a complete image list. You can also include the method file. I think it's stored by default in Program Files/Advanced Renamer/BatchMethods.

Update - I just used this method list on 1000 photos from my camera, and all were renamed properly.

I don't know why it didn't work earlier, and why it worked properly now.

Perhaps it is because I used AR 3.82 instead of 3.87. Also I am now using a new installation of Windows (power outage rendered my old installation unbootable) - I simply copied my old 3.77 installation and .aren files over from the old installation, and installed 3.82 on top.
