    File Object Help Please - Mass/Multiple File Rename

    Long time user and lover of MMF here!

    I was wondering if anyone could help me out with a little problem I have. Basically I am trying to rename all the files located in a specified folder to something else.

    I was thinking this could be accomplished by copying the contents of the specified folder into a temporary folder and randomly rename them in this new folder automatically.
    Some things that I am trying to do is rename files called "test1.txt", "test2.txt" ,etc. into a different order than before. (eg. test1.txt is now test3.txt and text2.txt is now text10.txt, or text1.txt etc.)

    A point in the right direction would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Thanks DJFuego for the response.

    Basically I would need to keep the original files in tacked and completely copy them to a temp folder and then randomly rename the bunch of them into a different order.
    The folder would be Appdrive$+Appdir$+"\temp files\"+"THE FILE TO RENAME".
    The OS is going to be windows. I am using Windows 7 right now.

    Basically my app needs to look at the files I have chosen to rename and discover the number of files I have picked.
    Once it knows I have chosen (lets say for instance) 10 files, then my app needs to rename and number those files randomly. This has to be done without reusing the same number twice.

    Perhaps I need to post an example mmf file? Unfortunately I am not too sure what would be in the mmf file... haha! Any help or point in the correct direction would be much appreciated. Thanks.
