Summary

This program will add the file date and time to the filename (rename it) to ensure that this file will be unique.

Parameters

RenTS [/f=]<file name> [/d=<format>] [/b] [/s[=<separator>]] [/t] [/v]
/VersionInfo or /i Display application version.
/FileName= or /f= File name to be renamed.
/DateTimeFormat= or /d=  Date/time format
/Before or /b Put the date/time before the file name.
/Separator= or /s= Define the separator between the file name and the datetimestamp. To remove the separator, use only /s.
/TestOnly or /t Test the given date/time format (don't run).
/Verbose or /v Show processing files.
/Help, /h or /? Display help. This will also display how the format works.

You can use wildcards in the FileName.

The file(s) which match the FileName will be renamed. If the file on the disk contains two brackets, the timestamp will be placed between the brackets.

Example

                NTBackup Backup d: /a /d"BACKUP CMD" /l"C:\Backup-logs\Backup.log" /tape:0
                RenTS C:\Backup-logs\Backup.log

                 24-06-00  17:42         <DIR>          ..
                 12-05-00  12:02                125.390 Backup.log
