Adding Serial Number while rename files through MS-Dos

Respected All!
A folder contained 45 files and I want to rename all these files by adding serial number in the start of each file like

1. BirthDayShots
2. BirthDayShots
3. BirthDayShots

.
45. BirthDayShots

Looking forward

Is this what you mean?

Code: Select all

Setlocal EnableDelayedExpansion 
set i=0
set "filepath=C:\Folder\of\files"
for /R %filepath% %%a in (*.*) do (
 set /a i+=1
 ren "%%~dpnxa" "!i!. %%~nxa"
)

Asim,
Your technical specifications for what you wanted to accomplish was extremely lacking. If I was given this little information I would be giving this back to my business analysts to rewrite it. Please be more specific with what you want to accomplish. Provide complete input and output examples.
