My computer is a lot like my house. If I don’t clean it regularly, it gets filled with unmanageable clutter. I decided to review Panda Batch File Renamer when it was time for me to do my regular computer cleaning and organizing, because I needed something that would provide a user-friendly and intuitive way to help me rename large numbers of files. After running clean-up and defragmentation software, it was time to tackle the big problem, the hundreds of word processing, image, and .pdf files I generate in my work as a writer.
When I am working on projects for clients, I often save large numbers of project specific files containing informational resources, rough drafts, formatting templates, and other project specific information. When I am working quickly and keeping multiple windows open, I often do not pay much attention to how I name and organize my working files. Later, when I skim through my project directories, it is often hard for me to remember what is contained in which file.
Animal Software’s Panda Batch File Renamer 2.3 is a small application with an intuitive, user friendly interface, that allows you to rename your files quickly. It allows you to take information directly from photo and music ID tags. You can see current and final file names side-by-side on the screen, with fast and continuous updates as you change names. Because Panda Batch File Renamer keeps a history of the changes you make, if you make a mistake or do not like a given change, you can undo it easily. You can also save renaming options so that you do not need to re-enter data needlessly.
Panda Batch File Renamer makes renaming files faster and more accurate. It is essential software for people who need to rename files often or in large quantities.
Panda Batch File Renamer is free for non-commercial use but requires a license for use in a commercial environment.
