The only difference between this script and this one is that the one works with a folder name and the one I need now needs to work with a file name.

So far the script looks like this. I know it cannot be completely wrong.

::@echo off
:DATAAVAILABILITYCHECK

setlocal enabledelayedexpansion
IF EXIST D:\DATA\ SET DataFile=D:\DATA\
IF EXIST E:\DATA\ SET DataFile=E:\DATA\
IF EXIST F:\DATA\ SET DataFile=F:\DATA\
IF EXIST G:\DATA\ SET DataFile=G:\DATA\
IF EXIST H:\DATA\ SET DataFile=H:\DATA\


setlocal enabledelayedexpansion
for /f %%a in ("%DataFile%") do (
	set FolderName=%%~nxa
	if /i "!FolderName:~-5!"=="-0.7z" (
		set ProcessFolder=%%~a
		goto :DATASETSTART
	)
)
CLS
ECHO NO DATA SETS DETECTED...
PAUSE
CLS
GOTO :DATAAVAILABILITYCHECK


:DATASETSTART
ECHO FILE DETECTED AS %ProcessFolder%...
::SCRIPT WILL BE IN HERE AND PERFORM ACTIONS WITH %ProcessFolder%
::ONCE ACTIONS IS FINISHED THE SUFFIX WILL BE CHANGED FROM "-0" to "-1"
::WHEN THE SCRIPT IS FINISHED IT WILL GOTO :DATAAVAILABILITYCHECK

So, are there folders under the DATA directory, or do you just want to process any matching files within that one folder?

There is no folders inside the DATA directory. Only files with a file name similar to these:
ECN-0601-VRK__2014-01-22__20h43-0.7z
ECN-0604-VRK__2014-01-01__10h43-0.7z
ECN-0702-VRK__2014-01-22__10h43-0.7z
ECN-0904-VRK__2014-01-31__10h43-0.7z

The idea is to process them one by one. After they are processed the suffix will change from "-0" to "-1".

Therefore, if the above four files have been processed their names will be:
ECN-0601-VRK__2014-01-22__20h43-1.7z
ECN-0604-VRK__2014-01-01__10h43-1.7z
ECN-0702-VRK__2014-01-22__10h43-1.7z
ECN-0904-VRK__2014-01-31__10h43-1.7z

Hope this helps to clarify the scripts intended operation.

I think this should be pretty close to what you need, let me know what questions you have.

@echo off
setlocal EnableDelayedExpansion

:DataAvailabilityCheck

set DataFile=
for %%A in (D,E,F,G,H) do (
  if exist %%A:\DATA\ set DataFile=%%A:\DATA\
)

if "%DataFile%" EQU "" (
    REM *** NOT SURE WHAT YOU WANT TO DO UNDER THIS CONDITION ***
    echo No data file folder could be located
    exit /b
)

set FileCount=0
for %%A in ("%DataFile%*-0.7z") do (
    set /a FileCount+=1
    set FileName=%%~nxA
    echo Processing file: "%%~A"
    REM *** DO ANY PROCESSING HERE ***
    ren "%%~A" "!FileName:-0.7z=-1.7z!"
)

cls
Processed [%FileCount%] files.
goto :DataAvailabilityCheck
