DOS Bulk Filename & Randomization
Posted on 2007-10-19
I've read some other threads about bulk renaming of files, but I can't find one that fits my situation perfectly.
I'm running WinXP SP2, in DOS (cmd.exe, anyway), I have a local directory with many .jpg files. I want to bulk rename them to a random number and keep the .jpg extension.
(06-01-01)003_3.JPG to uf5hs6k.jpg

I do not care about the length of the filename very much. I'd like to keep it fairly short and there are roughly 300 jpg files. My intent in the randomization of the file name is so that they are no longer in the alphanumeric order that they are currrently in. So, I don't want to bulk rename to a static name and increment a number (or letter) at some point. Thanks!
