Since I write a lot of code and have tone of versions and files and archive a lot of files. I used to manually add the date to the end of files, but I started doing it so much I made an app for it. This adds an AppendDate item to the context menu of files. When you select it, it adds the current date to the end of the file name (i.e. MyFile_20120511.txt) You can change the date format in the settings dialog. Hope you find it as useful as I do.



[UPDATE]
Now works on folders

[EDIT]
Made it so you can make your own format string to add to the file. See the ReadMe.txt for format options.

Could it (optionally) add the date before the name, instead of at the end? That is an often used way of archiving Wink
Also the underscore-separator would optimally be a configurable option, and be able to leave it out, imho...

I had to double check that one - probably been misspelling it for years...



EDIT/ +1 to the date as prefix to filename request

My memory of hearing that separator has "a rat" in it has outlasted my memory of the name of the teacher who taught me that.

sounds memorable all right smiley
- but our problem is with the "par" as opposed to "per". Could remember it via golf (par) but not even half as memorable as a rat ;-)

Update. Looks like a few like the idea so I made it so you can make your own format string to add to the file (and Prepend to file). See the ReadMe.txt for format options. Download from first post and see updated screen shot.

Sorry about the spelling, It's not my strong suit. :-)
