FileBoss's Advanced Copy Engine

(FACE) ensures fast, accurate, flexible and easy file copying, moving, duplication, backups and much more. FACE will never quit just because it can't copy one file.
For more see Copying Files.

Rename one file or thousands

FileBoss can rename one file or thousands most anyway you want.

The rename routines are the easiest and most flexible around. Each file can be individually confirmed (and, of course, changed before renaming) or you can tell FileBoss to just to do it all without asking again. And it can even rename recursively through folders.
For more see Renaming Files.
