Hi,
Please take a look at the screen shot
Attached Image

This happens when using Quick Actions, choosing _allfiles, Mixed Case.
Error message : cannot be renamed, file already exists.
Is it a bug or am I doing something wrong ?
thanks guys

Maybe the file system is case insensitive.

MP3tag is still a Windows application.
So somewhere, there is an emulator running. And NTFS (Windows) is not case-sensitive.
To rename a file you cannot only change the case of a letter, you really have to rename it to a new filename (like add an underscore at the end), then apply the new case, then remove the underscore.
No MP3tag bug but due to your environment.

in https://forums.mp3tag.de/index.php?showtopi...amp;#entry97227
you find an example how to rename files in principle. Perhaps the function $caps() is better for you.
