e.g. Folder1 contains 16 files and Folder2 contains 8 files so their new names become "16 Folder1" and "8 Folder2".

I have been unable to find any existing programs which do this.

Thank you very much.

Shouldn't be too horrible to do.

edit: Done diddly.

Pull any folder you want on to the executable and it will count the folders and files inside and rename the folder to "# OldFolderName". I put the sourcecode rar as well. If you want it for multiple folders at once that can be easily done.

Edit edit: Okay, added functionality to drop multiple folders in at once.

Requires .Net 4.6.1

Thanks

I made a folder named "test" containing four textfiles and dropped it onto the exe and got this

"Checking: C:\Users\MyName\Downloads\test
4 found
Renaming test to 4 test
4 test already exists"

The folder remains unrenamed.

I would definitely appreciate one that can do multiple folders at once.

Oh, I just noticed "Requires .Net 4.6.1".  I'm just going to check if I have that.

Do you mean it requires Requires .Net 4.6.1 or later, or would I be better to roll my version back?  Thanks.

I downloaded the one you uploaded first and wrote a reply without seeing your edited post from six minutes previously.  I downloaded the second version and it works perfectly.  Thank you very much.

Ah yes, I done goofed with the first one. Added in a check to make sure we don't try to move the directory to the same folder, but accidentally checked against the wrong variable :)
