Thousands of files and subdirectories contain as part of their names a wrong name "Naic" that I want to change to "Trace". Is it possible to do in an easy way. i.e is it possible to replace a name in thousands of files and subdirectories easily?

Please take a look at the following functions:
>> doc genpath
>> doc dir
>> doc movefile
>> doc regexprep
I think you can create a script to do what you are asking using these functions.
