Utility for batch renaming of files, recommendations

by Archangeldawn / March 12, 2008 4:11 PM PDT

Hi, I want to rename numerous image files and also song files, and I would like to know of any recommendations you guys have in a PC utility.

Also I used to have this software that would detect the folders with the greatest amount of space on the harddrive, but I lost if after a system restore...So I want to do some spring cleaning on my hard-drive and would like to know which folders have the biggest size, but I don't know the software that will do that for Windows 98 and XP

Thanks very much Happy

"Arrange Icons by Size" only good for one folder
by Archangeldawn / March 19, 2008 3:48 PM PDT

I'm looking more for a disk analysis where I can see what hidden files, cache files, and any other unorganized lost folders I might be able to get rid of to clear some Hard drive space. So "arrange by Size" is only good for one particular folder, I'm looking out for the entire hard drive rather than an individual folder.

Re: programs to find folder size.

The ones I've used (all free downloads): clduw and i.disk. But I've read on treesize also. Does one of those ring a bell?
Use google to find them.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
