Keeping file names but adding extensions:

I currently have thousands upon thousands of files that end in different extensions, .0001, .0002, .0003, .0004... .1056... .4567... etc., I need to change them all so that they end in .0000, but keep the original incremental numbering as a way to identify the files. A poster that had an issue similar to mine received the following advice:

"I assume that .001, .002 etc ARE the existing extensions and you simply want to add ".tif" to the end of each filename. Use the Add method. Add ".tif" at index zero, tick the "Backwards" box and apply to "Extension"."

However, when I tried the above, it applied '.0000' to all, but at the beginning of the extension rather than at the end.
I.E: 9_27_09.0001 became 9_27_09.0000.0001.

How do I change this?

Thanks,

Make sure that you have selected "Extension" (or "Name and extension"), NOT "Name", in the "Apply to:" drop-down box.

I've done this, and I'm still running into the same issue.

It's working for me.

Add method

Add: .0000
At index: 0
Tick: Backwards
Clear: Use regular expressions
Apply to: Extension

Filename: 9_27_09.0001
New Filename: 9_27_09.0001.0000

I'm not sure why it's not working for me. I did all of the above and it still won't work. Below is a link to a screenshot, not sure if allowed to post links on the forum, but here you go. I also tried using the New Name method, New Name: <ext>.0000
Apply to: Extension, and got the same results.

I only get this error when I upload a batch of files. If I upload them one by one, the naming comes out like I want it to. Any reason for this? I have thousands of files and it doesn't make sense to upload them one by one.

Fixed: I unchecked the box that said "Rename file pairs with the same new file name." The naming is fine now.
