Rename many files at once.


Recommended Posts

Hi.

I may need to rename many files to unique names after a file dump. Is there a way I can do this if I have a CSV file with the old and new file names using a script?

Thanks.

You can use a .bat file.

 

rename "oldfile" "newfile"

 

You will need to include the full path to the files if you run the .bat file outside the folder the files are in.
