Editors' review

A simple, no-frills tool for renaming computer files, this download works well and produces useful results. After a fast installation process, the software generates a window that offers a variety of options for renaming files. Examples include changing uppercase and lowercase letters, inserting numbers, replacing letters or numbers, changing the time stamp, or adding prefixes, suffixes, or file extensions. A separate function is aimed specifically at MP3 files, allowing users to create new filenames from ID3 tag information such as artist or track name, or to add track numbers. The interface may not be particularly beautiful, but we found the renaming process functioned smoothly, and would recommend the program to anyone who wants a little help creating consistent filenames.

    "What an Excellent program!"

    May 30, 2008

    Version: File and MP3 Tag Renamer 2.2

    Pros

    Stable, comprehensive and does what it says with a variety of excellent options. I do suspect that some users here don't understand the sometimes logical/mathematical task and thinking that has to happen before committing to any batch-renaming process. I have used it to manage entire media servers, software and web sites I designed and it never failed me (well, except for the times I wasn't careful and didn't back up the files before renaming them or changing their date, etc.)

    Cons

    usability could be stepped up a bit. This isn't the best interface. The process is not obvious at all and the design of the interface is very 1998-ish...

    "Long Time User - Just Upgraded to latest version"

    January 01, 2008   |   By Not So Naff

    Version: File and MP3 Tag Renamer 2.2

    Pros

    Simple to use with a wide range of name change possibilities. It has been used in major revamp of my last 25 years of files including most file types.

    The program is not used often now but cost of the Upgrade was negligible, the cost at the outset is low and the free Upgrade period is excellent.

    Take a trial and check it out, fantastic value.

    PS. The developers are NOT paying me for this message.

    Cons

    Like most software capable of doing a good job it has a learning curve. A little effort put in will be rewarded.

    "Program did not function (Win XP, latest updates)"

    December 22, 2006   |   By TrackSmart

    Version: File and MP3 Tag Renamer 2.2

    Pros

    Didn't work - no pros

    Cons

    I clicked "Apply" to change the file names - nothing happened. I clicked "Preview" and no preview was provided for the new filename. In short, the program did nothing! ................

    I have several thousand mp3 files which have proper ID3 tags, but disorderly filenames. I was hoping to rename my files using the descriptions encoded in the ID3 tags. As I said, the program was non-functional, despite a seemingly successful installation and despite a functioning interface. For background: I am running a licensed copy of Windows XP with all of the latest updates as of Dec 22, 2006. I am also running Symantec AntiVirus (latest updates)............ I hope this program works more successfully for others.

    "Cant use the words here"

    June 23, 2005   |   By cdnynp

    Version: File and MP3 Tag Renamer 2.2

    Pros

    Please...

    Cons

    I purchased this product to help me manage my 90,000 plus photo files.

    Does not recognize 'intuitive view' of files. Meaning that if you have named files with the windows xp renamer you will NEVER see them in intuitive order - (10), (100), (1000) will be together rather than (10) being followed by (11) - etc. Thus if you need your photos to be sequential after the 'rename' you're up a creek.

    Does not allow you to move files in the set up window to correct this.

    The customer support is next to none, borders on rude.

    Programme is nothing that you can't find for free on the net.

    "The best file renamer"

    August 10, 2004

    Version: File and MP3 Tag Renamer 2.2

    Summary

    I found this file renamer to be the best I've used in its category. Extremely fast and flexible in renaming multiple files. This one has it all. After a short learning curve you'll be renaming files faster than you've ever dreamed of. It also reads your MP3 tags from your songs, a very helpful feature in renaming your MP3's.

    "Very badly programmed. Doesn't work properly."

    June 30, 2004   |   By spunky

    Version: File and MP3 Tag Renamer 2.2

    Summary

    Very difficult to get any kind of results for what you want to use it for.

    I wanted to use it to rename some mp3s according to their ID3 tag. Using the features available it should be perfect for me, but they didn't work properly at all:

    - The replace spaces with underscores actually replaces them as hyphens - totally confusing
    - when you are adding enumeration to the filenames it will not put a space afterwards.
    - the option "all lowercase" doesn't work

    Basically I wanted a filename like this: -

    01-me_first_and_the_gimme_gimmes-i_believe_i_can_fly-sote

    But I end up with this: -

    01Me-First-And-The-Gimme-Gimmes-I-Believe-I-Can-Fly-SotE

    This program might be good in the future when the writers fix these things, but until then, it's just a waste of time and space.
