Renaming a file in the <search results> not possible

If you try to rename a single file in the <search results> the action is refused by an "error renaming the file ..."

Renaming files in the <search results> caused deletion

Post by Helmi » Fri Dec 02, 2005 6:41 pm

The "error renaming the file ..." I found in an older version.

In the Version 1.70.4 I selected some files in the <search result> window (Files from different subfolders). Then I pressed F2 for the rename batch dialog. I selected <Filename No Ext> and added a short prefix.
After this action the Thumbnail-names seemed to be not renamed but when I selected one of the "batch renamed" files there was no bigger view and no reaction on doubleclick. :?
The files seems to be automatically deleted insteadt of renamed. :(

I couldn't find them in the original folders neither then on one of my other drives. They are definitly gone, but don't bother they where not so necessary because I have a copy somewhere.
The former search dialog is finding now an amount without the number of my "renamed" files.

Strange, after the batch rename, you must have always your files, but perhaps (a bug?) not in the original folder...
