Known Issues

  1. Jumbled order when sorted by file type.

    Clicking on the column header "Type", will result in a jumbled order of file names sorted by file type.

    Cause:

    The current natural sorting algorithm is not a stable sort. Currently a better natural sort is being sought.

    Workaround:

    Use a regex to filter by extension.

  2. System files are shown despite folder options.

    System files (e.g. AUTOEXEC.BAT, boot.ini, pagefile.sys, e.t.c.) are shown despite having "Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)" checked in "Folder Options".

    Cause:

    The way files are displayed in Batch Rename is based on the file's attributes. Windows does not mark those as system files, therefore the files are treated as normal.

    Workaround:

    None.

  3. Mislabelled drives.

    DVD-Rom drives are labelled as CDRom Drive. A: and B: are labelled as Removable Drive.

    Cause:

    This is due to the way Windows return the drives info. It doesn't allow to distinguish between DVD drives, CD drives or Floppy Disk drives.

    Workaround:

    None.
