Rename many Folders: A.B.C-123 to ABC_123

Question by Guest | 2019-03-07 at 16:21

I would like to rename folders named "A.E.M-123" to "AEM_123" with the File Renamer. Again, I have hundreds of them. Is there an uncomplicated solution?

If the filenames are named A.E.M-123, A.E.M-78, A.E.M-589 etc and should be renamed to AEM_123, AEM_78, AEM_589 etc, you can use the following in the Find and Replace function:

  • Search for: A.E.M-([0-9]+)
  • Replace with: AEM_$1
  • Check the box next to "interpret as regular expression"

The regular expression [0-9]+ matches any digits.
