While this app does many things I find Advanced Renamer is more than enough for my needs and much easier to use and learn, I'm just sayin.

It's great except it does not support regular expression (regex) that contains lookbehind.

Why bother with an inflated 25 MB "advanced" tool with muddy licensing terms
while 485 KB slim Pintosoft's FocusOn Renamer v1.3 (Free for everyone - personal and commercial use) will perform just as well ?

this is indeed a very robust renamer!

im torn between this and Advanced Renamer :(
http://www.portablefreeware.com./index.php?id=1848

both are great, coming from payware 'Better File Renamer', both these freeware offer every naming scheme/option!

this seems to provide more support for multi-languages.
i will probably make the switch to this.

great add.!

i take that back, i just tried using this and im disappointed in the interface.

sadly, the abundance of features make it very difficult to use.

im sticking with Advanced Renamer, while it doesn't provide support for multilanguages, it's interface is much more user-friendly. simplicity and ease of use for me is important.

i'll use this only when required for multilanguages, but for everyday usage, im sticking with Advanced Renamer.

I tried to use latest zip (8.4), could not do anything. There was no option to add rules. May be something is wrong with the UI or it does not support Windows 8.1 N version.

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.

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.

This is a nice tool, I gave it a good wokout, having said that...
It still has some bugs and is not totally stable; It has a good chance of crashing on MASSIVE renaming jobs. It has a good chance of crashing from a chosen preset at the Shell Context Menu (which is a pretty cool feature by the way). The "Preset-Shell Context Menu" is non-active with folder and subdirectory renaming. The GUI is messy, cluttered and not friendly to inexperienced users.
