Hello,
I was wondering if anyone knows how to do the following...
I have 10 subdirectories each with 15 files.

The first directory I want all the files to be named; 001 01, 001 02, 001 03 .... 001 15.

The second directory I want all the files to be named; 002 01, 002 02, 002 03 .... 002 15.

As well, the 00x should be a variable starting point.

Any help?

What are the names of the subdirectories? If they are 001, 002, 003 it is pretty easy. You can use the New Name method and this pattern:
<DirName:1> <Inc NrDir:1>

If there is no obvious pattern in the directory names there are no really easy way of doing it. Then you have to rename the directories one at a time.

Thank you for the help Kim.

The subdirectory names could be anything. I guess you are saying that Advanced Renamer can only rename one folder at a time?

Would you know any other software with this ability?
