Auto Rename Rules

Introduction
The auto rename feature allows renaming of files and folders according to user defined rules.

Type

WildCard
The input is being matched against the search value. If there is a match the replace value acts as a template to generate the output value.
The following wild-char or meta characters are defined and can be used in the search and replace value:

 Examples

Search Replace Input Output
*.htm *.html index.htm a.html
X*Y*Z AA*BB*CC X1stY2ndZ AAFirstBBSecondCC
file?.txt ?file.txt file1.txt 1file.txt
*exp?sin tra?la* 94expXsin tralXla94

WildCard (No Case)
Same as WildCard with the difference that the case is ignored when matching the search value with the input.

Scope
The scope value defines the range in which the rule applies.

File  Applies to files only
Folder  Applies to folders only 
Any File or Folder
