Using ScanDir
To start, select the drive and folder where you would like to begin a search. Next specify one or more search arguments, indicate whether or not to include sub-directories and hit the [SCAN] button.

The results of the Scan (search) are displayed as a list of file- and/or folder names (item list). All (or selected) files and folders in the item list can be Renamed, Copied, Moved or Deleted. The current version of ScanDir also includes the ability to (pre)View text- and image files, Play media files, Open (run) program files and generate a CRC32 or MD5 checksum for selected files. CRC32 and MD5 checksums can also be used during rename, saved as a text file or copied to the clipboard. Right-click in the item list to view all available options. The entire item list can be Saved (exported) as a text file or the item list can be Printed.

The Rename function includes automatic numbering of files and folders, extend filenames with one or more path levels, add a date stamp, extend or truncate filenames, add, change or remove extensions. There are multiple ways to modify the text case. The Rename function can also be used to generate Bates numbers for a range of files. A limited Rename function is available during Copy and Move using the Copy/Move dialog.

In addition to searching one specific directory tree, ScanDir can also process a predefined (include) list of folders spanning multiple drives. A second list of directories (Skip) can be used to specify folders that should be excluded (skipped) to reduce the time required for a scan operation.
