Ant Renamer v2.12.0

Checker on 13 Jul 2015
  • 3MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 4 Jul 2015
  • Suggested by Andrew Lee

Ant Renamer provides many options for the batch renaming of files and folders. The program includes the ability to change file extension, replace/insert/move strings, change case, even give files random names. The program can even rename based on date and time (great for scanned files) or using exif/mp3 tag info (making metadata the file name), or regular expressions. File renaming can be previewed before execution and changes can be added to a batch file and saved for future use.

Alternatively, Ant Renamer Portable (PortableApps.com Format, adjust drive letters and paths as you move PCs).

What's new?
  • Option (disabled by default) to consider the last "." in folder name as extension delimiter. Previous versions were always considering that a folder could have an extension, but that's commonly used.
  • When folders are renamed, the path of files in the list is updated if needed. Previous versions were giving an error as files contained by renamed folders were not found anymore.
  • "Case sensitive" option in the "Multiple string replace" action.
  • A few bugs fixed.

@ smaragdus: Thanks ... and updated ;)

There is no way to rename using multiple methods/rules at the same time. You have to use one method at a time. Also, can't preview all the files and can't undo after closing the software. So, I prefer Advanced Renamer.

I don't know whether it is solid, but it is not portable, I extracted the x64 bit installer ('solid_renamer-120-x64.exe', version 1.2.0.5) and it stored its settings in C:\Users\XXX\AppData\Roaming\Bitdreamers\Solid Renamer. I cut the config folder and put it in program's folder but the next time I ran it, this renamer re-created its config folder in AppData. The previous version (1.1.1) may not be that solid but at least is portable.

Siren v3.14

Midas on 2 May 2020

Siren is a file renamer which allows for batch file renaming based on expressions (kind of an extended Regular Expression syntax). Also allows for insertion of file information (file Date, ID3 tags). Includes undo/redo functions, recursive edits (directory and sub-directories),

Functional in Linux (GTK2 required).

Category:
Runs on:WinXP / Vista / Win7
Writes settings to: Application folder
Unicode support: Yes

What's new? New features:
  • File type "auto detection" for wrong or unknown file extensions:
    - New column : "Detected Type" (not displayed by default).
    - New variable "Detected Type" : %yd.
    - New options in Preferences/General.
  • Monitor changes in current directory:
    It even takes in charge the modifications done by Siren. The directory tree is not monitored.
  • Support of some new file types:
    - fon : font file (Windows only).
    - snd : sound file.
  • Minor modifications:
    - "Insert into expression" option added in the right-click menu of completion windows.
    - Better first placement of the completion windows.
    - The toolbar buttons and menu options associated to completion windows are now "checkable".
Bugs correction:
  • All platforms:
    - Display of the image after modification of Display/Image preferences.
  • GNU/Linux:
    - Position of the file list column header right-click menu.
    - Horizontal bar under main menu .
    - At first start, the "First contact" window is not active.
  • Windows:
    - Stricter management of the ':' character in new filenames.
    - In the directory tree the "backspace" key generates a two levels jump back.

Siren has somewhat of a learning curve, but is the workhorse of file renamers -- and now available also on Linux. Highly recommended.

Oscar's File Renamer v1.2

Checker on 15 Mar 2014
  • 556KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on
  • Suggested by Andrew Lee

Oscar's File Renamer is a unique file renaming tool with an integrated text editor and macro support. You can perform custom editing of filenames using the integrated text editor, then apply all the changes in one operation.

Note: Newer versions of the program are shareware; linking to old version.

Category:
Runs on:Win95 / Win98 / WinME / WinNT / Win2K / WinXP
Writes settings to: Windows registry. But it writes a small number of non-critical settings (window position, last path accessed, last sort direction), so I am accepting it as portable.
Unicode support: No
License: Freeware
How to extract:
  1. Download the installer and extract to a folder of your choice
  2. The application files are located in the {app} subfolder
  3. Launch Renamer.exe

Problems? This process requires an up-to-date component (Innounp 0.36 or above) for Universal Extractor. If you have difficulty extracting the files, follow the steps below and retry:
  1. Download the latest version of Innounp
  2. Extract the RAR package to the \bin folder of Universal Extractor, overwriting the existing innounp.exe

Brilliant little program, exactly what I need! Same as the authour, me too I was fed up renaming hundreds and hundreds of files using the Windows F2 key. I was thinking about writing a similar program, but luckily I looked on this website first for existing programs and samed myself a lot of time developing the thing myself. This one definately stays on my toolbox-USB-stick! Many thanks to the author.

SteveIT on 2007-11-22 01:41

eh "saVed" myself a lot of time obviously

guuruu on 2010-07-20 13:30

Thanks a lot! For me the best solution!

Just small addenda: Writes settings to Windows registry: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\PrivatePict\
