Duplix is a batch duplication utility for Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux. The Duplix utility quickly duplicates files and folders using numeric or custom naming. The numeric naming option allows the user to set a range of values and includes a “minimum digits” setting which can automatically add zeroes to the file names to maintain alphabetical sorting for the duplicated files. The custom naming option allows the user to type or paste in a series of names for the duplicated files. The custom names can be separated by commas, spaces, or line breaks. Both numeric and custom naming options allow for a prefix and suffix for the duplicated file names, and even allow the user to alter the file extension if needed. Existing files can be preserved or overwritten by duplicates depending on the option selected. The user can also choose to delete the original file or folder after duplication if desired.
You can install Duplix directly from this webpage (if you don’t have the AIR runtime yet, this will install that for you as well):

Duplix is 100% free to use, but donations are welcome. Because this application is free, I’ve decided not to spend the $200-300/year on a software certificate, so the publisher will show up as “unknown” on the somewhat ominous install screen.
