Rons Renamer - Powerful Batch File Renamer

Simple, neat, yet powerful, safe and fast. The best file renamer for multiple files and folders (MP3, EXIF files).

Rons Renamer is a tool for renaming many files in one go, using rules like search and replace. Batches of files can be 10's to 1000's, and span multiple directories, with an unlimited number of rules that can be combined to achieve almost any result.

Rons Renamer has been designed from concept to execution to be simple and fast to use, without compromising on power; in short to make a difficult job as easy as possible.

Ideal for renaming collections of photographs or music, or even a general tidy up of your documents!

THANK YOU. Tried out a few crappy ones before I found yours and got the job done in 5 minutes, just like in my wildest dreams. Now I can just get on with what I was doing in the first place! Nice job.
