LittleClean is a little application that will let the user change file names in a particular folder. Users can either remove a certain letter (or a combination of up to 5 letters) or replace a letter or a combination of letters with a replacement. Changes can be made in a non-destructive way such that users can alter file names to their satisfaction without affecting source file names. And no change will be made to actual file names until the user clicks on the Execute button. When they do click on Execute, LittleClean will change file names one by one strictly according to the New file names column (middle pane). So what you see in the list really is what you will get.
The Development Story:
Well... Personally, I listen to classical music a lot. People use the FLAC container to compress classical music files. So I've developed xLosslessAudio so that I can convert those files into ones with an iTunes-friendly format (AIF, AAC, Apple Lossless, MP3). A few days ago (early September, 2011), I was not able to convert one set of FLAC media files because the names of the files include one specific character that the audio converter can't read. This character is inverted exclamation (¡). NameRanger doesn't work in a way so that it will remove an unnecessary letter from all files in a particular folder. Removing a certain letter won't be easy if you have a dozen files, each of which contains several letters to remove. That's why I had to develop a batch processor like LittleClean.
A demo/trial version is available.
