    For mp3's they have ID tags and basically any mp3 renamer can rename an mp3 based on artist and track title. I have 108 pdf files in a directory, all nameless, but some have title and author data. What would be the best way, besides manually editing each and writing in Author - Title.pdf?

    You guys may be wondering why I keep mentioning nameless files in my posts today. My computer crashed and I used disk recovery, and it gave me nameless files of specific types like pdf, avi, txt etc.

    Sorry, I have no answer for you. But, just out of curiosity, how do you even open a nameless file? Click on the spot where the name should be??

    I meant nameless like their name is generic and not the right name that it used to be. Everything is named File123.pdf, File124.pdf etc
