When a lot of files get archived because I had a Windows crash. When finally reinstalled and restored, The VVEngine could not be stopped quick enough. The profile ran. Therefore, I am spending hours to rename the files back to their original name, such as taking off the (2020-11_12-30-16_DEL_T) appended when archived.

What would be best is to just place the archived file(s) into an archived sub-folder with the archived date, leaving the original file name alone.

I am in the process of renaming hundreds of files back to their original name, removing the appended backup date, so I can copy them back to the source folder. Such a pain!!!

Hi, thank you very much for the feedback. Have a look for now at https://www.bulkrenameutility.co.uk/, you can use it to remove the suffix from the file names easily.

So perhaps just that element of BRU could be included within ViceVersa 4.0 ?

Yes, I think it would be good to have a restore routine from the archive, such as copying all files after/before a certain date using the archive timestamp. So we could use the file filters as now and the archive could be the source folder and the files would be filtered using the timestamp in the archive instead of their modified timestamp or both.
