    rename multiple folders at one go
    I have around 3000 folders with names assigned to them already.
    I need to change the name for all the folders...Not a simple change in the name..mostly the complete name will change.

    Say for Ex:-
    Current folder :- XYZ
    New folder ABC

    Current folder AAA
    New folder BAB

    Note:- I have listed all the current folder names and the corresponding new folder names in a excel sheet side by side...

    Would appreciate any help in automating this rename process

    Im using a OSX Lion.

    i just googled "mac batch rename folders", it looks like there could be a number of options for you, one of which is Automator, pre-installed on my macbook at least.

    Thanks joinerbuilder
    I did searched for this action and couldn't find anything.
    The Automator has plenty of options to rename the files in a certain adding date
    Or adding specific word...or adding numbers etc.....

    But my requirement is quite different..I have a list of the names and want to reassign as per the list

    Any suggestions would really help.
