Software to automatically rename files in a folder?

I am looking for some software to automatically rename files that are added to a folder.  I know that there are software to batch rename files, but I want a program that will "automatically" rename any file that I add to that folder. Meaning, if I copy a file to a folder, I want the program to automatically rename that file that I just added to that folder. I want to automatically rename all the files in the folder in sequential order.

What OS do you have?

What you'are asking is very much possible on MacOS.

Not sure about Windows.

It is simple to write a batch file to do this, as you are aware. Why not create the batchfile and then create a scheduled task to run the batch file every minute (or less). this could save you having to find an equivalent piece of software.

Good luck

I don't think I explained myself well enough, so here is what I need: A file renamer that will automatically rename all the files in a folder every 2 second.  That way I don't have to run the software to rename all the files in that folder each time I add a file. sl1210, I don't know how to create a batch file.

actually to do this, the app will be always running waiting for any changes in your folder , so it's better to make a bat file or use one of the programs suggested

I know it will be always running, that's not a problem. How do you make a batch file?

Try robotask. http://www.robotask.com/. it will automate almost any task, including renaming. a trial version is available for download. You can then use the windows task scheduler to make the 'task of renaming' files in the folder you specify; to run at multiple times, say every 15 minutes.No need for batch files!
