Hi,

I am trying to rename a directory of folders in windows. From windows explorer I am dragging and dropping the folders to AR and selecting adding the 110 subfolders. They all show up on AR. I am trying to replace a five digit number that appears at the beginning of each of these folders. The "New Foldername" column shows that they should be renamed correctly. However, when I "Start Batch" I get 111 errors for 111 folders. Does anyone have any thoughts on how to resolve this?

Thank,
Paul

I work with Paul, and we tried the same process on my computer. I was able to rename almost half of the 100+ folders. It appears to have worked only on the last folder in the directory structure, and not on any folder that had a subfolder.

Thanks,
Jay

Are any of the folders sub folders of other folders added to Advanced Renamer? If you rename one folder and have sub folders of this folder in the list, the rename of the suib folders will fail. Can you tell me if the program reports any errors on any of the folders prior to renaming?

Yes, all of the folders are subfolders of the main folder on some level. When I drag and drop folders I click to add the root folder and to add the subfolders. They all show up on the Advanced Renamer main screen with "ok" under the error column. However, once I start the batch I get the error code "101 - Unknown error" for every folder I tried to rename.

Thanks,
Paul
