DESCRIPTIONThis little "applet" randomizes file names in a given directory. It will give them a random, 32-character file name consisting of hexadecimal characters (a-f, 0-9), and keep the extension of the file.
Why? Well, I have a lot of files that are really nondescript, and having a random file name for them instead of "New Text Document 45124.txt" works out better. For me, at least.
It requires .NET Framework 4.0 installed on the target computer.
Please note that it will skip "Thumbs.db" and "desktop.ini", so as not to screw up your thumbnails or folder settings.
Feature requests are welcome. Planning to add support for custom file name length in the future.
This is an application that can also be fetched from https://sourceforge.net/projects/fnamerandomizer/. It has been hosted in OnWorks in order to be run online in an easiest way from one of our free Operative Systems.
