Windows 7: File and folder renaming/organising help please.

File and folder renaming/organising help please.

Hello, I seem to remember seeing a tool called file 2 folder which puts a files into thier own folder and names the folder the same as the original file, i have had a search both here and google but have not managed to find it. Any nudge in the right direction would be much appreciated.

Also, I have a fair few folders all containing 1 file, the folders are named correctly but the files inside are not, is there an easy to make the files match the folder they are in?

Thnks in advance.

I'm familiar with a tool that turns .iso disc images into normal folders and vice versa.
Is this what you are talking about?
Sorry but what you are describing seems somewhat redundant to me.

Otherwise the best suggestion I have for you is to look at robocopy.
Utility Spotlight: Robocopy GUI

adds an insane number of little tools to the copy/paste/move scheme in windows.
