Slow Multi Rename

#1 Post by vidw » 04.03.2020, 20:51

I selected many files in a directory to apply multi rename to. My pattern for replace ends up only applying to a few of the selected files, but the rename operation takes a long time--as if all files are processed even on those where no change to the filename is necessary. I would have thought this would be very fast as only the files that are renamed are processed and the rest should be skipped.

Should I move this to the Feature Requests or Bug Reports board?

I'm not sure if it's a bug, I think it's the right forum.

Perhaps provide more info, how many file, which type, which pattern - are you using exif or id3 tag items?

I think that all files must be checked, but not processed.

It's possible to remove files from list, if needed.

BTW Make sure you're using the latest version.

The files that will be affected are shown as green in the New Name column. But when I click Rename the unaffected files change to green, one at a time slowly.
Since the files that need changing are known before the rename operation starts, FreeCommander only needs to process the files that are green--the other files can be skipped--and should remain black.

I'm using version 810a if it matters.
