Do you still have the batch rename settings you used? We need that to sort out what happened.

Can you also provide a before and after example for the filename?

@rodrigounda – fear not, all is not lost, we are here to help!

 

We just need to understand which bits you wish to keep, if any... And what the new bits should be. New names and sequences can be created. File extensions can be fixed.

 

P.S. The Batch Rename tool has an option to preserve the original filename in metadata, so that it can be restored if required after a rename, but you need to use it before the first rename. The metadata may also hold the original filename in other fields, but this is a slim hope. The Batch Rename tool also offers a preview button for the entire batch.
