Means To Set The Method Of Naming A File/Folder In A Sequential Manner...?

By montecarlo1987 ·
Hello. I have a question to ask you.

Is there a means or a way to set the method of naming a file or folder in a sequential manner (an suffix extension to the filename like ???1???, ???2???, ???3???, etc.; or ???A???, ???B???, ???C???, etc. .; or a user's own defined orderly sequence) when a user has copied or moved of a file or folder to a folder where the same file or folder name already resides or exists?

I am also hoping for the means for the user to ACTIVELY SET OR SELECT (???customize???) the sequential manner of an extension to the file name and then ???set it and forget it??? so NO query is raised (in the form of some GUI [Graphic User Interface] window to appear) during the process of moving or copying the file or folder to a folder where the same file or folder name already resides?

I am not sure if there is some third party program, application, or software to install that performs like what I am asking above; or if there is some system registry or system directory modification or change that allows for this (I would think that it has connections with Windows Explorer is some manner.)?

Please provide your own detailed written steps, facts, suggestions, hints, and tips; and/or the best possible well written, detailed and documented website links.

NOTE: For your information, I am using Windows 7 64-bit operating system which would be implicated with this issue.

Please reply.

Thank you!

***Let me add an important point.

I see it is potentially possible as a reader who has read my above initial question may have misconstrued my methodological instruction which after re-reading my initial post, I understand your perspective and I was not clear enough. Sorry about that! You may be thinking of a ???mass renaming??? of files and folders where I would have a 'GROUP of files and/or folders ALREADY' to rename. NO! Sorry! What I am asking is when I add (key words) *one-by-one* either a file or folder to a folder that has a file or a folder of the same file or folder name inside, it would assign a new file or folder name extension in sequence?

Please reply.

Thank you!
