Our Popular File Name / Attributes Handling Software
Just Got Better with new version 3.1 and added features !
A convenient bulk file name change / or file attribute changer . . and more. To change a number of file names or attributes quickly, ensure all of the files are in the same directory. Then let filemod change the names or attributes at very rapid speed.
Changing only one file? Filemod contains an "only one" feature also. In newer versions, such as 3.0, filemod also will provide file name lists, a unique file delete command, and also help on writing over private deleted files.
Renaming Digital Camera Photos
Digital Cameras are great! However, they of course don’t know the event they are being used at. Use filemod and “make sequence” to change the names of those files in bulk from a camera photo number to “Europe2002_001”, for example, where the “001” on the end is the number of the photo. The event name can come in front of the sequence number, after, or both (the "both" option is shown above.) for more click on: Photo rename example
File Name Change Case
Filemod is able to change case of a directory of file names (or nested directories) to either all small letters, all capital letters, and even title case (capitals at the start of words for the name, and small letters for the file extension). More on this by clicking here.
File Name Modify Capabilities
Ever wish to slightly modify directory file names after the fact in bulk? In directories or even nested directories? Filemod can do some of that. Filemod contains a more powerful file name change agent - a find and replace routine. This function can be used to find certain characters in your file names within a directory and change them to other characters. For example, it can modify all spaces " " in your file names to underlines "_", or do the reverse of that, or even change a name to another. This find and replace works on the whole name plus the extension, such that even extensions can be modified by this, one type at a time. More on this by clicking here.
CD Rom Disks to Hard Drive
Storing CD rom data on hard drives is a great way to save data. However, when read back to hard drive, those files annoyingly may be marked “read only” and not be able to be directly modified later. However, filemod can change those files rapidly to “elim most readonly”, which does not affect system files, or “read all”, which makes ALL files in that directory read and write. Read-only example
Hard Drive to CD Rom Disk
When saving data from your hard drive to a CD disk, some CD burners will not accept file names over a certain number of characters - such as 60. Yet if some data is saved, such as emails, data names on your disk can exceed that length. It is tedious to shorten every file name one at a time. Filemod can shorten file names to any reasonable length you specify rapidly. file name shorten example
Making Important Archives Read Only
Do you have files you wish kept as they were - with no new changes? Put those files under the same directory and let filemod change those files to read-only.
A number of programs will not modify file extensions - the ending three letters such as “doc” or “txt”. This program will. The file extension may be modified one at a time using the “only one” option, or can be modified in bulk in a directory by using the “extensions” option. file extension example
Firewall Assistance - File Name Scrambler
Concerned that someone could get through your company or home’s firewall and get to important business files? Those business files may be overlooked by a thief if they simply do not have a rational name associated with them. Filemod includes a file name scrambler / de-scrambler that can modify file names based on your simple alphabetical coding. Filemod also modifies some extension endings, including: .doc, .txt., .pdf, .htm, .html, .xls, .ppt, .exe, .bmp, .jpg, .gif, among others. In addition, filemod will also modify file attributes to hidden or unhidden - following the normal windows conventions of those attributes. More on this by clicking here.
While thankfully rare, file names can become corrupt to the point where the names are no longer legal and sometimes windows operating systems will not even allow them to be deleted. Isolating those files in their own directory and using "make sequence" will usually allow the file to be modified or deleted later. Note - if one cannot move the file to its own directory, consider moving the other files in that directory temporarily out - if at all possible. Then use filemod.

Limitations and Cautions
The program will modify files for names and attributes, but not the directory names or attributes. The program is a powerful one, and one must exercise caution over and above the safeties to ensure that the files in the directories to be modified (and directories nested inside of those) are correct. Renamed files may not be recognized by programs or operating systems after the modification.
Safeties are optional, but begin in the “on” position. The safeties are for (1) ensuring only one directory looked at, (2) Asking on first change out and (3) not changing system files. With care, the first safety can often be turned off in order to do multiple nested directories at once. It is suggested to leave the other two on. However, that is your option.
