Hello,

I have about 22K files I'm trying to backup and do some house cleaning while I'm at it. I broke them down into 3-4K file batches and am trying to rename them to something with the date in them so:

<Img Year>.<Img Month><Image Day>.<Img Hour><Img Minute><Img Second>.jpg

The Image Year always show up as a incremental sequence, so the names end up like this

0123.1023.142203.jpg
0124.1023.14.2409.jpg

The Image Year is on the file EXIF information because I can see it in the pane right below it in AdvancedRunner, so I'm a little confused as to why it isn't picking it up. It seems like it works if I prefix the name but it's not consistent. For instance

pic_<Img Year>.<Img Month><Image Day>.<Img Hour><Img Minute><Img Second>.jpg

It shows the year, then I editit a little and try to put it back to where it works and it doesn't give me the same result.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Kevin

If you save your method list to a file and send it to me I will try and see if you have misconfigured something. I have never experienced the behavior you describe.

This is one of the options I tried:


<Img Year><Img Month:oo><Img Day><Img Hour><Img Min><Img Sec><Img Subsec>_<Img CameraMake>.jpg

And it always showed the <Img Year> as a incremental 3 digit number.

Thanks,

Kevin

I cannot reproduce the problem you describe. Are you sure the date is stored correctly in the file? I need your method list file and a sample image file producing the problem and be able to reproduce the problem on my own computer before I can help you.
