Hi, I have150 floppies that have pictures on hem. I want to copy them all to one folder but each floppy has the same file numbers " Like MVC 0015 ". Windows won't let you copy the same file name unless you over write them. Any Ideas would help. Thanks Picky

You could use Bulk Rename: http://www.bulkrenam...uk/Download.php, which will rename all files on one floppy with one click, so they'll read, for instance:
1MVC 0015
instead of:
MVC 0015

Second floppy:
2MVC 0015

and so on.

This way, the number of operations go down from 2250 to 150
