I cannot rename files in bulk using ubuntu's rename feature. The files are on a NTFS partition.
I want to rename files that look like this:
whatever pic george.jpg tacoma narrows bridge.jpg green bottle.jpg
filename (1) filename (2) filename (3)
And I cannot do this at all. I don't want to use the command line either. So I can permanently erase files after I have encrypted them without exposing their contents to people who use a file recovery tool.
I also don't want a method that takes days or months to rename the file. That is, rename one file at a time. So if I have hundreds of files to rename, this won't be a option. I want to give a each file the same name and numbered in order like shown above.
Pyrenamer is not an option for me, unless you can find how to do that in PyRenamer.
