A tool for easy bulk files renaming, with an ability to pattern match files.
Let's say you want to rename all files with prefix "Copy " after drag-and-droping images from Pictures to the Desktop (i.e. remove "Copy " prefixes from all filenames).
Folder selection and other issues fixed.

Works as intended. Perfectly
Mind you that the reviewer who said the program messed up his Finder probably was using “.” characters in his pattern matching which would if not used only at the end of the search and replace terms likely screw many files over hundreds of files by changing what the Finder thinks the file type is. DON’T USE period in your matches unless you are adding to the end of a file name some kind of designator for yourself so you know where the files originated or some other scheme in which case the search term would be “." and the replace term would be “NewFileNameEnding.” Careful to leave the . on the end and NOWHERE else….
Worked like a charm for me both renaming (A* - > B*), eliminating part of (A* -> *), and adding to the end of file names (*. -> *B) for hundreds of files. No messed Finder!
Saved me an enormous amount of time…
Basic and worked fine for me
Apple added a rename function that has a lot of shortcomings if you rename a lot of files. For example, if you want to change a large number of files’ filetypes, it will nag you for every file (“Are you sure?”). This program worked very quickly and did not nag me with every rename. It only does one folder at a time, but it was still a huge time savings from the nag screens.
I manage inventory in QuickBooks using *.iif import files. I always perform all of my inventory updates in a TEST version of the company file, once I am certain the import generates the desired results I then perform the import in the LIVE version. I like to name all of my import files according to the TEST or the LIVE environment. Once I have a functioning import file I copy it from the TEST environment and rename it using the LIVE environment convention. this little tool vastly simplifys this entire process.
