Are we allowed to use ampersands in filenames? Does Opus have a problem with them or just me? Like I get the feeling sometimes Opus doesn't like me using them, but other times it's okay.
I have a folder with 180 photographs.
I did a batch rename on all these photos from:
YYYY - S+R Wedding, Hawaii - 001, to:
YYYY-MM - S & R Wedding, Hawaii - 001
By the time it finished the 10th or so file, Opus froze up, and also my whole PC. Couldn't move the mouse, nor even ctrl-alt-delete to bring up Task Manager. Rebooted to fix it.
Went in that folder again, tried to batch rename again, and before any files were named, same issue. So I've stayed clear of that folder for a while.
I've just gone into it again, and looked at the files for 20ish seconds in details mode, (10 files still named with the & and the rest with the +). Moused over one, and displayed a thumbnail of the pic, and then computer froze up again. So this time, just by having the folder open in Opus without doing anything caused the PC to just freeze.
Rebooted, went into explorer, and removed the ampersands from those 10 files. Went back to Opus, and now no issues with opening that folder for any time.
