I have about 100 htm files that are too large. I have these htm files in other directories that are the right size. I can sort these files by clicking on the size column. I want to put all these files regardless of size in the same directory so I can sort the files by size. How can I put the files in the same directory with the word "copy" sitting next to the file name? The next task will be to sort by filename and size at the same time.

Thank you in advance for your reply.

I use a freeware called Fast File Renamer from Freebyte for things like that, it's very handy and quick. There are other similar tools and you could also use command line.

Alas the Freebyte site seems to be gone, but their software is still available from other sites, for example here I found Fast File Renamer.

Thank you for the reference.

Thanks again.

I was going to ask who MM is, but then it dawned on me. Yes, I think so too. The hair and the way she holds her head. Yes, it's true. We are very alike. biggrin.gif

Hope you like the program. I've used it for ages. Love those small, swift programs that do one thing and do it well. I'm sad to see the site is gone. Was other goodies there too.
