Where did my files get moved to

Post by donky »

I have a fairly standard Episode Format of {n} - {s00e00.lower()} - {t}

After searching for names with the TVDB when I click on Rename - FileBot shows the MOVING FILES dialog and the progress.

Where did my files go to.

The folder where the original files were is now empty.

I have a strange feeling this dam program DELETES the files if the file name is too long for Windows.

Tell, oh please tell me I am wrong.

I'm pretty sure rename will just fail with any kind of invalid filename. And with that format you will never exceed 256 characters anyway. What OS / Java version are you using? Sometimes windows explorer doesn't refresh properly after rename.

Check FileBots internal rename history (right-click rename button -> history) and from there you should be able to revert any rename operation.

Thank you for your reply. I am using a fully updated Windows 7.

I will check the history and let you know.

After the files were "moved" or what ever happened after I clicked on rename. I did a full search of my computer for file names like what I had to what they could have been. I could not find them.
