Need to rename a whole whack of folders?

Bulk Rename UtilityAfter converting almost 16 000 MP3s to a lower bit-rate using TAudioConverter, I realized I forgot to check off “add encoder suffix to created folders”.

This resulted in hundreds of folders with “_Lame” tacked on to the end of each folder name.

I started picturing renaming them all by hand and decided to search out something that could do it for me.

Google brought me to and the Bulk Rename Utility.  The name isn’t very imaginative, but it’s free and it worked perfectly.  It only took a second or two once I figured out the interface, which isn’t exactly clean.

My only complaint is that the logging function doesn’t appear to work.  I thought it was a permissions issue, but moving it to a non-system folder didn’t make a difference.  I used the Portable version if that makes a difference.
