Division by zero while analyzing

I'm trying to rename tonz of files and folders (bit by bit, I'm only adding folder by folder so the tool is not overloaded by transactions.
But everytime I try to add a specific folder it says: "Floating Point division by zero". And then the whole programme collapses :(
Is there any kind of bugfix for this?
Folder info: 221 files, 21 folder, size 244 MB
There are some special characters in the file names (that's why I'm trying to rename them), for example:
à ¤ ' ¶ ¼

Thanks for help!

Well, I cannot send explicit filenames because I don't know which one causes the error... And the error persists though I have manually renamed all files in that specific subfolder. There are no more special chracters but it still crashes with an division by zero. :/

What is the file type of the files? Are they images, music files, video files, or something else? Does all the files make the program crash?

Hi there,

well, in this case it was obviously a corrupt image (jpg).
I could track the error down to a very old "images" folder with some jpg's from 1998 - one of those seemed to have been corrupt. I deleted the folder and the images and since then I have been able to rename lots of files again!

Thanks for the help and ideas where to search.
