Finding original camera filename from different versions of preserved filename

Hi,

 

I have been batch renaming files, but while doing so, I had to overwrite on my files multiple times and now i am unable to find the original filename which the camera had assigned at the time that the image was taken. While renaming multiple times, I had not realised that the original camera filename will be overwritten. An example of a camera filename is DSC1001. I tried looking into the File info > Raw Data and couldnt find it. Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thank you

If it is there, then you may need a more robust utility, such as ExifTool:

 

https://exiftool.org/

 

Sometimes found under –

Photoshop:SlicesGroupName

XMP-xmpMM:PreservedFileName

 

If you can upload a sample file I can check for you, however, not all files contain the original filename information and if you have overwritten the Preserved File Name multiple times then you are out of luck.
