MyCloud Mini

The latest firmware update (20120814) for the MyCloud comes with a new feature called Batch Rename. You can now easily rename multiple files at the same time and automatically number the files.

As an example, let's say you have just uploaded a batch of images from your recent trip. The original file names from the camera might look something like this "P1000794.jpg". Wouldn't it be easier to have a file name that reflects the content of the images?

Here is where batch rename comes in handy. Simply select the files and rename them all at the same time with a name that is easy to remember. The system will automatically number the files, so you don't have to do anything manually.

  1. Select the files you would like to rename.
    batch-rename-01
  2. Right-click to open the context menu and select Batch Rename.
    batch-rename-02
  3. Enter a name followed by a dash or underscore (the dash or underscore is not a requirement, only a suggestion).
    batch-rename-03
  4. Click OK to rename the files.
  5. The selected files will be renamed automatically with the new name plus a number attached at the end (e.g. images_01, images_02, etc.).
