Batch rename? (3 posts)

I'm wondering if there's a way to rename a whole bunch of files without re-uploading the files. I have changed my website to all lowercase and have a LOT of files which were affected. I'm talking thousands of images, and I'd rather not have to rename them by hand or re-upload all of them. Any help would be great.

Do you want to rename every file or folder that has an upper-case character in its name?
Are the files in just a few folders, or spread out over lots of different folders?
To answer your first question, yes, I want to get rid of any caps in my URLs. The files in question are spread out over a bunch of different folders set up like this:
sub dir 1
sub-sub dir 1
sub-sub-sub dir 1
sub-sub-sub-sub dir 1
sub-sub-sub-sub dir 2
so that the address looks something like this: mydomain.com/photos/photo1/photo1-1/images
I don't know if this all makes sense, but basically it's a lot of files in a lot of different folders. If you need any more info, let me know.
PS - I was wondering if some kind of AppleScript might work? I know VERY little about AppleScript, so forgive me if it's a ridiculous suggestion.
