Mutli Rename with move to new created folder

#1 Post by mumajs » 19.09.2023, 17:13

Hello All,

I have a lot of pictures taken by the logic below (in one folder):

050109-1.jpg
050109-2.jpg
.
.
050109-130.jpg

I know that 09 is the year, 2009, 01 is the month and 05 is the day. I would like to have the files moved to the appropriate automaticaly created subfolder with the name
Photo 2009-01-05 and move all files there with original name.

I read some old posts and it should be possible in Multi Rename tool, but unfortunately I can not use "\" in the Multi Rename dialog.

Sorry to show the solution in another file manager, but in TC I can do it as follow:

"Photo 20[N5-6]-[N3-4]-[N1-2]\[N]"

It will create the folder "Photo 2009-01-05" and move files there with the original name.

I have 30k+ photos which are easily sorted out in TC, but I dont know how to accomplish that in FC (which is my favorit)... Any help please?
