Is there any way for me to rename a large number of files without losing
A client of mine has inadvertently added a suffix to all files.
File names should be similar to below
Client added suffix
Sort of. In SW Explorer, copy with children, find the replace button.
Replace all instances of 6001-1 with 6001. Make a copy, and you should have
the files renamed. Hopefully, it's that simple, because replace doesn't
support wildcard characters.
If it's not that simple, add more suffix. Something that doesn't occur
elswhere. For example, you could add "temp" to all the files, then make a
copy of those, using replace to get rid of "-1temp"
Bingo--- That's what I need as replacing the -1 with nothing also
affected other files e.g. GDP05-1000-6000-1 became GDP05000-6000.
THANKS, you just saved me from renaming several hundred files one at a time!
