    Dreamweaver Renaming help

    Tim316
      Hi,

      I took over a project for someone and a bug was assigned to me saying that we needed to change the a few of our folder names within the site.

      I'm not too familiar with dreamweaver but it is what we used to create the site. I tried renaming 1 of the folders through dreamweavers file manager but after typing in a different folder name it comes back with an error message.

      "A file with that name you specified already exists" regardless to what I chose to rename it as.

      I right click the folder that is displayed in the Files tab of the site management. Then I go to Edit > Rename.


      I'm hoping there is some way to rename these folders where it will update all the links.

      Any help would be appreciated.

          Do you have any files that might reside in that folder open at the time?

              So, you had other files open from within that folder as you were trying to
              rename the folder?
