Is there any software that will allow me to enter a tag into over 900 .nfo files?

 

The nfo files are located in there own directory but I need to enter in a tag to enable XMBC to use thumbs.

 

Thanks in advance

If I remember, .nfo files are just plain text, so it might be pretty feasible to write a batch script to insert the appropriate tag.

 

Can you describe the format and content that you'd want to enter?

You can do it using Notepad++ and the Find in files option (Ctrl+Shift+F) and a regular expression.
 
Find what: [insert regular expression here]
Replace with: [insert your tag here]
Filters: *.nfo
Directory: [insert root directory of nfo files here]
 
Check In all sub-folders and Regular expression.
