NameDropper Batch Renames Files and Folders in Seconds

Windows: If you’ve just taken a ton of photos, or you have a bunch of documents that you want to rename so they’re in sequential or date order, NameDropper is a Windows utility that lets you drag all of the files you want to rename into one window and process them all with a single click.

To use NameDropper, you’ll first have to drag and drop the files you want to rename, and then drag in the name that you want applied to the files. The app will then append incremental numbers in patterns you select. While NameDropper can batch rename images and photos for easy uploading to your favorite photo site, there are other applications that we’ve mentioned before that can do that as well. If you just want to append a number after each file, Windows can already do that for you. NameDropper is strongest when renaming videos, documents, or other files.

For example, if you’re trying to rename a collection of videos you’ve taken at family events, or television episodes that you’ve backed up from your own DVDs, the app can help you rename them all and organize them in sequential order, with complex file names and multiple numbers.

update: A number of you have mentioned that the developer is distributing the app through BrotherSoft, which requires you install the Brothersoft Downloader before you can get the program. Keep this in mind if you want to give NameDropper a try (and make sure to uninstall the downloader after installing NameDropper.)
