Thank you GOTD & AlgoLogic! For me this software worked great for my needs.

I had a bunch of files that had alternate number and characters at the end of each files, so I used this software to delete the last 9 characters ending in the file name and it worked perfectly, this prevented me from having to rename all the files manually and saved a ton of time.

Thanks again!

I have found that you can batch rename of file in windows by selecting all the files you want to rename and then right click and rename the files, and it will take and rename all of them as 1,2,3,4...etc. Example I selected 86 photos from my family reunion and renamed them reunion 2017 and hit enter. They were renamed reunion 2017 (1) thru (86)

Masterguns, WOW! What a great hint! Thanks so much! I think I could have saved literally weeks of my life if I had known about that hint!

I got Batch File Renamer 2.4 from GOTD 12.20.2015.

The license lasted a year.

I just entered the new license from the "readme.txt" file in today's offer and I guess it is renewed for another year.

It is easy to learn/use and I appreciate the free program.

One thing that I noticed is a problem with a 'space'. I am trying to rename a file from "filename (retail) (epub). epub" and remove the " (retail) (epub)", but the program won't remove the space before (retail).

I will try the two free programs suggested by other GOTD members...and THANKS!

I use Bulk Renamer Utility (BRU): http://www.bulkrenameutility.co.uk/Main_Intro.php

It's free and has just about every feature one could imagine. The user interface takes some getting used to, though. (Yes, it supports regular expressions.)

Looked to see if it could replace my current "Bulk Rename Utility" software (free), short answer is no. Interface is quite basic, capabilities seem fair and no where near what Bulk Rename can do. Here's a screenshot compare for those interested (http://www.bulkrenameutility.co.uk/Screenshots.php). Just can't match the capabilities (albeit you have to get past a monster list of renaming options).

Batch File Renamer 2.4 was a GOTD offering back in October 2015. I'm assuming it's unchanged. I DL'd and tried it then and found that it did what it promised on the tin. Unfortunately though . . .

That retail sticker price really hurts its prospects and discourages usage. Not only is it up against multi-purpose freeware capable of meeting basic batch demands, like Irfanview:


it's up against single-purpose freeware, most notably in the form of Kim Jensen's Advanced Renamer:


This beautifully executed offering is a class-act example of how to get things right: an excellent UI; thoughtful and extensive tutorial information:


and a very active user forum, too . . . and all of this put together by a single, independent, developer.

Advanced Renamer, at a cost of $0 forever, represents so inviting a prospect to potential users that commercial developers need to think long and hard about their own proposition.

This is especially the case where today's developer is concerned: AlgoLogic is seriously deluded if it thinks that minimal tutorial information, no user forum, and a recurring 12-month license of $29 is going to appeal to, well, anybody at all -- a situation made even worse by the fact that if in August 2017 this product is the exact same as it was in December 2015, then what possible justification exists for a 12-month rentalware license other than profit gouging??

To be fair, AlgoLogic isn't alone in punting as commercial product that which freeware developers offer for nothing -- or, as in Kim Jensen's case, ask merely for a donation if you like the work they've produced and use it frequently.

Thanks, then, GOTD and thanks, too, to AlgoLogic, but I found no incentive to keep Batch Renamer 2.4 in December 2015 and see no incentive to do so now. The developer needs to understand that if there's nothing wrong with the product, but everything wrong with the price, its future is bleak indeed.

PS: The long-established 'Total Commander' is often cited for comparison purposes in any consideration of batch software. Erroneous information about this commercial program peppered the GOTD comments thread the last time today's software was offered. In hope this won't happen again now, please note that 'Total Commander' has never been free, and is not free now:
