Multiple copies of the same file renamed
« on: April 26, 2015, 08:12 AM »
Multiple copies of the same file renamed.

I am searching a good free for creating with a shortkey over the selected file (or contextual menu) n copies of that file renamed sequentally.

Is posible and any other option anyway.

Best Regards

ctrl+C and then ctrl+V n number of times?

In Windows 8:
test.pdf
test Copy.pdf
test Copy (2).pdf
test Copy (3).pdf

AFAIR: in Windows 7 you can mark all the files and just rename the first one. The rest will be renamed like Nod5 just wrote; test.txt, test (1).txt, test (2).txt, etc. If you are unhappy with the result, a quick right-click: ''Undo rename'', is all it takes.

In XYplorer you select the file(s) you want to Duplicate and press Ctrl+D. Key repetition works: keep the buttons down and copies are churned out like machine gun fire.
