Failed to rename "name03" to "name02"
It appears to be failing because the new and old names overlap. If that is the problem, perhaps a temporary name should be used (temporary names are obviously not ideal but this is a really nice tool and it should always work).
The problem is not obvious especially if you have lots of files, say "file070" to "file300".
