Bug ID: 391312
Summary: Rename with time template can add colons (:) forbidden
character in Windows 10
Target Milestone: ---
I was using [date:"h:mm A"] to batch rename some files. I thought the new
names looked good in the preview so I hit OK and the files promptly
disappeared. I used my file browser to look in the folder and all the photos
were now 0 bytes in sized and no longer JPGs. I eventually realized the date
template was able to add a COLON to the filenames and realized they are
forbidden characters in the Windows file system.
I know I should remember more forbidden characters, but I think the program
should not let me and especially catch it in the preview.
I once renamed a folder and somehow added a space to the end of the folder name
that Windows 10 forbids for filenames that I could not open that I had to
delete from the Run prompt. I also think folder names that end in a ")" cause
problems. They show in the tree but show as empty in thumbnails until I rename
them back to the old name.
