Problem of Data Disorganization & Inconsistent File Names
Keeping track of your files on OneDrive isn’t always easy. This is especially true if you’ve tens of GBs of data stored in your account.
Inconsistent & non-descriptive file names, file names with typos can contribute to many errors. Besides, photos uploaded from the digital camera often have system-generated sequential numerical strings (such as DSC_0001.JPG, DSC_002.JPG, etc). This is the standard file naming criteria followed by most digital cameras. Such files are difficult to find when you need them the most. In addition to that, they can be lost easily. You could mistakenly delete an important file from your OneDrive account even without realizing it. As your OneDrive cloud storage gets occupied with tons of files, it’s imperative to manage and organize them efficiently.
What are Prefix & Suffix?
Prefix and Suffix are both kinds of affixes.
Prefix is the text that is to be added at the beginning of the file name. It is a part of the affix that is added to the beginning part of the file name to produce a related word.
For example: The original file name is “project.docx”. Adding the prefix “office_” will turn the new file name into “office_project.docx”.
Suffix, on the contrary, is the text added at the end of the filename before extension, or at the end of the file extension. For example: The original file name is “Graph.xlsx”. Adding the suffix “_2022” will turn it into “Graph_2022.xlsx”. Similarly, if the original file name is “finance report.xls”, adding the suffix “x” after the file extension would turn the new name into “finance report.xlsx”
