"Exactly what I needed"

August 11, 2009  |  By PenguinMan98

 |  Version: MassReplaceIt 2.9.1

Pros

Simple clean mostly-intuitive interface. Showed you which files it was going to change and where in that file it would change.

Cons

After you set the initial parameters, the continue button is labeled 'replace' and even gives a popup asking you to confirm you want to replace the text. However the replacement isn't done here but later after it shows you the list of files.

Summary

Perfect little search and replace editor. Saved me hours of work.

"Did exactly what I needed"

June 25, 2006  |  By stavia

 |  Version: MassReplaceIt 2.9

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
MRI did exactly what I needed: change .JPG to .jpg in 3000+ among 8000+ files scattered at different levels through about 150 folders.

Surprisingly, the first few batch-rename apps I downloaded were not capable of doing this, at least not really easily right out of the box. And this one is free!

The only suggestion I'd make would be a progress bar or something. At least an indicator it's working. Just having the app be non-responsive made me think it had crashed.

"Excellent, if you need it"

May 10, 2006  |  By JonJohnson

 |  Version: MassReplaceIt 2.9

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
<p>This product works as advertised, and solves a good problem. I had to do a mass replace through several thousand source files in a volume that also contained a lot of other files that couldn't be touched. This tool made easy work of it.</p>

<p>A few suggestions, however. Initially I thought the tool wouldn't work for me, as I am accustomed to having the options "RegEx", Match Whole Words, and Case Sensitive next to the Find and Replace fields. Although initially confusing, I did notice you could do it. on a different tab.</p>

<p>I am curious whether the tab panel is needed. Since the tab panel is only maybe 300x300 pixels, that would total a 600x600 window, which is a reasonable sized window nowadays (although I'd shoot for 600x400-450).</p>

<p>Keep up the excellent work. It's nice to know that there is a solution for this problem when I run across it.</p>

"Incredibly useful and effective tool"

March 20, 2006  |  By icecreamtruck

 |  Version: MassReplaceIt 2.9

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
It does what it says it does, and it does it well. If you've got gobs of files that you need to rename, this is the tool for you. I haven't tried the contents-replacement or the regular expressions yet because I use BBEdit for that sort of thing, but if it's anything like the filename-changing, then I'm sure it will be great.

"the best..."

 |  Version: MassReplaceIt 2.8

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
his tool is definitely the best for the job. i renamed thousands of mp3's with no hassle in blinding speed. my customized search includes at least 15 different attributes and they got replaced in just one run. besides the quality of the product the developer is supernice. it just can't be better. if you regulary use it please consider a donation because this app should really stay free for all...
