    Looking for a Folder renaming utility


    I don't need to rename files, just folders. What I have is a large collection of legally traded lossless live music. Many of the files were in shn and the folders for each concert have (shn) in the folder names. I've since converted all my shn files to flac and now I want to remove the (shn) text from a large number of folders. Most bulk renaming utilities seem to only work on files, and I need to modify a large number of folder names. Looking for recommendations.

    Advanced Renamer is a program for renaming multiple files and folders at once.

    I tried it already. Didn't like it much. Also kept freezing when trying to load the large number of folders I need to rename.

    Go here: LazyWinAdmin: PowerShell - Renaming a bunch of folders

    This will show you how to do it using Powershell. Hope this helps.
