──apple.png
──box.png
──cartoon_imp.png
├───green
──cat.png

There is *_imp.png in every folder.I want to rename every folder with corresponding to *_imp.png filename inside it.
Like this

──box.png
──cartoon_imp.png
├───dog
──cat.png
──dog_imp.png

Code: Select all

setlocal enabledelayedexpansion
for /f "delims=" %%f in ('dir /b/a-d/s *_imp.png') do (
   set "name=%%~nf"
   ren "%%~dpf." "!name:~0,-4!"
)

@echo off

cd blue
FOR %%G IN (*_imp.png) DO (

echo file found...!

echo %%~nG > file.txt
FOR /F "delims=_" %%M IN (file.txt) DO (

echo %%M
cd..
mkdir %%M

move /y blue\*.png %%M\
echo y | del blue

)


)
rmdir blue


and make sure you run this program from outside blue folder.

suppose you have blue folder in this way..... D:\youR_folder\your_folder2\blue
then run your script from your_folder2
cheers....!

Where does this process the other folders with a *_imp.png file names in them? You only did the blue folder. And, if there are other files in the directory besides PNG files those will be deleted.

echo file found...!

echo %%~nG > file.txt
FOR /F "delims=_" %%M IN (file.txt) DO (

echo %%M

mkdir %%M
cd %%M
move /y ..\*.png
cd..
)

)



just put this bat in that folder in which *_imp.png is there.
and after that u will get all .png in that perticular folder.

prash11,
I think the point of the exercise is to process all the files and directories in one execution of the batch file. Your solution only processes one directory at a time. If you had a 100 folders like this would you want to copy your batch file into each folder or edit the batch file to change the directory name.

!K!'s solution is processing everything at once.

Hi !k,
There is a problem.Your code works fine if I copy the bat file and run it inside the folder.
But if I drag and drop the folder into the batch file, it changes the folder name from the entire drive.
Is it possible to use the above script so that I can drag and drop folders.
Thanks

This is untested but should handle a single folder.

@echo off
setlocal enabledelayedexpansion
pushd "%~dp1" && (
for /f "delims=" %%f in ('dir /b/a-d/s *_imp.png') do (
set "name=%%~nf"
ren "%%~dpf." "!name:~0,-4!"
)
popd
)
