Could not reproduce that advrename thing, so far, and it did not happen anymore 
I'm renaming a lot, so maybe i'll stumble over it again some day...

As for renaming, i needed a recursive feature quite often....let me do a little 
advertising :)

Because the metatags are often wrong or simply missing, i try to keep the most 
important facts in the filename, which is reliable on every OS and avoids 
complex metatag searches. But it happens that i change a naming system. 

Since i maintain well sorted image, music, and video collections, about - let's 
see - 2900 folders in total, in hierarchy, and more than 47,000 single files, 
this is not trivial. I would have to write a very reliable renaming script 
myself, and at that point, i usually use gcmd :) but it is tedious with so many 

Maybe rarely anybody else sees a need for it. Still, wouldn't users more often 
consider to clean up things a little, if it only would be an easy task ? 
And with gcmd, it would !
