    Renaming files issue


    Does anybody know how to rename a bunch of files in Windows 7 while ignoring the filetypes at the same time? In Windows XP this wasn't a problem, no matter what format the file had, the numbering would continue anyway. In Windows 7 the numbering starts over again when a file has a different filetype format.

    For example:


    file (1).jpg
    file (2).mov
    file (3).wma

    WINDOWS 7:

    file (1).jpg
    file (1).mov
    file (1).wma
    file (2).jpg
    file (2).mov
    file (3).jpg
    file (4).jpg

    I want the numbering to continue in Windows 7... (NOT have multiple number ones or two's)

    I always use a renaming utility like this one cause Windows 7 won't do that with it's native renaming utility:

    I know that utility

    Thanks for the reply...

    I know Bulk and I already used it. It is a very good one I might add, however...

    In Bulk, I cannot find the feature to first sort my files by date and then rename then.
    I know I can sort them by "date modified" or "date created" but NOT the "original date"...

    In Windows I could do that: sort them by date (original) and then rename them...

    How could I solve this? (Or is it possible in Bulk?)

    thanks in advance

    PS: I already readed this thread on Bulk Forums: Bulk Rename Utility • View topic - Date Taken Original Not Showing Correct Value

    This works in Bulk BUT ONLY for pictures!!! Video files taken with a camera does NOT show "date taken original" in Bulk

    Although this is an old thread, thank you very much for the recommendation.

    I'll take a look at it.
