    Dry

    is there any software or a dos command to rename a file for eg:

    Britney Spears - Megamix - Chris Cox Mega Mix

    TO

    Britney Spears - Megamix - Chris Cox Mega Mix - Blah 2004

    i mean i just want to add some thing at the back of the file name.now there may be 100's of files in the folder with different names.

    ren *.* *_-_Blah_2004.*

    note: you can't use spaces in the filename youre adding, also note do it from a CMD.EXE prompt and not a COMMAND.COM prompt or you'll lose long filenames

    I am just a worthless liar. I am just an imbecile.
    I will only complicate you. Trust in me and fall as well.
    I will find a center in you. I will chew it up and leave.
    I will work to elevate you just enough to bring you down.

    Hi Vargas.

    How does one get to a Command.Exe prompt rather than a Command.Com Prompt ?

    I usually go Start/programs/Accessories/Dos Prompt.

    Regards

    command prompt:
    start>run>command.com

    cmd prompt:
    start>run>cmd.exe

    Thanks for that Vargas !

    So is Cmd.exe the best way to go for all Dos work ?
