I have a client who downloads file from the internet using uTorrent. Not sure how this works but as he does he creates folders to put the files into. The folders are named in the format he wants the files to be named. Example--he downloaded this file and it was created and named sample-nova.2011-09-28.xls. It is located in folder named "Sample Nova 2011-09-28". He wants the files to be renamed to mirror the name of the folder, so can we read the folder name and then use that to rename the file. There will be only one file of each file type in the folder, so there may be a .xls or a .pdf or both but never two of the same type in the same folder. Thanks.
