Default Renaming muliple files (Sequential numbering)

Hello,

I would like to rename a series of 458 files.

Currently, they are are as follows:

001.pdf
004.pdf
006.pdf etc.

I would like to rename them so the numbers flow sequentially and without gaps

001.pdf
002.pdf
003.pdf

Is this possible? Any tips, suggestions would be appreicated

Hello,

Beyond Compare 3 has a fairly powerful Rename function, but it does not detect the order or count of the list of files. You could rename them manually, but this is probably not what you are looking for. You may need a dedicated Rename program or utility. Please note that BC3 aligns files by file name, which would cause problems if you wanted to compare the renamed files to an original set.

Sorry, we don't have much experience with dedicated rename utilities.
