Tutorial how to bulk rename Google Drive files

Google Drive

Google Drive is a file storage and synchronization service developed by Google. Launched on April 24, 2012, Google Drive allows users to store files in the cloud (on Google’s servers), synchronize files across devices, and share files. In addition to a web interface, Google Drive offers apps with offline capabilities for Windows and macOS computers, and Android and iOS smartphones and tablets. Google Drive encompasses Google Docs, Google Sheets, and Google Slides, which are a part of the Google Docs Editors office suite that permits collaborative editing of documents, spreadsheets, presentations, drawings, forms, and more. Files created and edited through the Google Docs suite are saved in Google Drive.

Install Dependencies

First, I’m using Linux Ubuntu, but I think this tutorial will work with other distribution too. This tutorial using Google Drive Ocamlfuse and renameutils, so we install that dependencies first.

add-apt-repository ppa:alessandro-strada/ppa -y
apt-get install google-drive-ocamlfuse renameutils

Setting Google Drive Ocamlfuse

After installing Google Drive Ocamlfuse, The first time, you can run google-drive-ocamlfuse without parameters:


This command will create the default application directory ($HOME/.gdfuse/default), containing the configuration file config (see the wiki page for more details about configuration). And it will start a web browser to obtain authorization to access your Google Drive. This will let you modify default configuration before mounting the filesystem.

Then you can choose a local directory to mount your Google Drive (e.g.: "$HOME/Google Drive").

Create the mount point, if it doesn’t exists:

mkdir "$HOME/Google Drive"

Then you can mount the filesystem

google-drive-ocamlfuse "$HOME/Google Drive"

If success, you can access your Google Drive files from file manager.
