i know this is only a renaming tool but i just want to check this...

i have a number of duplicate files in the search/rename that i have just done, and helpfully enough, PFrank renames it but adding -copy to the filename (great touch i think) so what i want to know is can i either move just those -copy files to a new folder or can i delete the file directly?

YOu can do the following:

1)
set the name filter to *-copy* or *copy* might be good enough.

2)
paste something like the following into the custom renaming creator (don't paste the single quotes):

Row: 1
Search: '(?B)(.*)'
Replace: 'c:/xxx/\1'

This will move all files with the word 'copy' in them to the folder c:\\xxx.
Substitute c:\xxx with the real path to where you want to move the copy files.

Peter.
