I keep getting the error when I try to simply add text to the folder names. I am able to do whatever I want in AR to the files in the folders (or any directory for that matter). And I have verified that I have full control/access over the directories, I drag & drop from Windows Explorer and then close the window. Regardless of what I try, I always get the error and the folder names do not change.

Any ideas?

Are you renaming both parent and sub folders in the same batch? If a folder parent to a sub folder is renamed before the sub folder, the rename of the sub folder will fail.
If this is not the case you need to make sure you don't have a file open in one of the folders.

Only trying to rename the sub folders, and I have made sure that none of the folders are open during renaming.

I have sifted through the help topics here and that was one of the first things I tried. I also tried un-installing (using Revo), restarting, downloading the latest version and reinstalling. No change.

Can you rename the files from Windows Explorer? Can you tell me the path of one of the folders you are experiencing problems with?

Yes, I can rename the folders from within Windows Explorer. The typical path I am using is "C:\Documents and Settings\[USERNAME]\desktop", however I have also tried the root directory of both HDDs I have installed. I get the same result regardless of the location.

By what I have heard until now you should be able to rename your folders. You are using ver. 3.24, right?

Can you send me your settings file and possibly a screenshot of the program before you start the batch? The settings file can be found by clicking Settings and on the Environment tab click Open Folder in the "Save settings in this folder" group. The file I need is the one called settings.ini. You will find my e-mail-address by navigating to Support in the menu in the top of this page.
