Bridge global rename folders names (with sequence number or grep)

Very first time I had to do this, but I needed to batch rename not files this time, but folders. As they were named "folder name", "other folder name", and I would have loved to name them "01-folder name", "02-other folder name"...

I didn't manage to do that since batch rename is greyed out.

Is it me or is it impossible ?

You don't say if you are on a mac or PC, but on a Mac, this app is awesome for that kind of thing!  http://www.publicspace.net/ABetterFinderRename/version10.html
I think they do a Windows version, but not sure, but the developer is very helpful so if they don't he will let you know of an app for windows he recommends!

Thank you, I appreciate (and had heard of A better finder rename, and I'm on Mac, BTW), just surprised about that on Bridge.

I've used A Better Finder Rename for years, to be honest to the point where I never trusted Bridge or Lightroom to perform renames! ABFR does such a great job, I find a Mac feels naked without it!

Plus it can handle folder contents too in the same process! Brilliant App!
