Description

Version
1.1.6, 32-bit and 64-bit

Mixing objects (files, folders, etc) via random numbers/strings with fixed length for easy renaming (eg [N6-]) or sorting in future.

Data fields

Number

String
Generates a random string of 64 characters in length.

Generates a pseudo-random number from a file name, the size of 64 characters. Each file name corresponds to a single number, it reduces the likelihood of recurrence of file names.
HEX_FromName
Generates a pseudo-random number in hexadecimal from a file name, the size of 64 characters. Each file name corresponds to a single number, it reduces the likelihood of recurrence of file names.
String_FromName
Generates a pseudo-random string of 64 characters in length from a file name. Each file name corresponds to a single number, it reduces the likelihood of recurrence of file names.
Number_AntiСoincidence
Generate random number from 00000000 to 01999999, with anti-recurrence protection. Protection creates a session for 1000000 renames without recurrence of numbers.

Using

Syntax
The number of characters can be adjusted by adding a ":1-8]" (without the quotation marks) instead of "]", where "8" - the number of characters.
Example 1
Use a mask filename "[=random.Number:1-10] - [N]" at group renaming for random order of files (from "music.mp3" get "7374632904 music.mp3")
Example 2
Make new columns view or edit existing. Add column with "[=random.HEX]", click "Ок" and back to main window. Select resulting columns view. Left click on column header with random numbers for enable random sort. Now, select all files and make group renaming with mask "[C] [N]". We'll get randomly placed files, numbered in order starting at 1.
