Victor, three questions:

1.  How does Flatten Folder deal with same-name files?

2.  What is the upper limit number of files that can be processed that have the same name?

3.  What is the upper limit number of total files that can be processed?

Thanks!

Hello & good day! There you go:

1.  How does Flatten Folder deal with same-name files?

Renames by adding a string based on epoch + file index in the batch.

2.  What is the upper limit number of files that can be processed that have the same name?

As many as needed.

3.  What is the upper limit number of total files that can be processed?

No upper limit! --As much as your computer can handle ;)

This is golden, Vic!  I've used it now many times.  Super fast.  Feedback when finished.

Used another, more kludgy, method for years.  And your solution is vastly better.

Hope lots of people out there somehow come to learn of your gem.

Thanks!!

One possible enhancement request, Vic!:

If a directory tree to be flattened has a branch that exceeds 260 characters, Flatten falters.  A polite message is popped onscreen to that effect.

Then I have to try to shorten said path, and/or filename.  If user does that, Flatten fulfills flawlessly.

By the way, I've set my 'registry' to overlook long path/filenames.

Flatten still chokes... at least in perhaps a pre-do check... on long path+filename.

So, the request is, any other workaround besides manually trimming the troublemakers?

Thanks again!!

Thanks for your kind words of appreciation Nick :-*

Yes. It should be possible to catch & fix those automatically.

I'm adding this one to the list of releases to close the year... (actually getting resources to make one last coding spree on December to end 2021 on the positive side).

Cheers!

Recently flattened a rather large hierarchy of files using Vic's program here.

Over 48,000 files.

Flatten did the job wonderfully!
