Need to edit thousands of file names.
Posted on 2011-05-09
I have a job where the provider mis-named appx 50,000 .jpg images.
They are currently named as such: IMG_2011_05_SYSTEM_FIVE_00001.jpg, IMG_2011_15_SYSTEM_FIVE_00002.jpg, etc...
and I need them all named without the "_SYSTEM_FIVE" like: IMG_2011_00001.jpg, IMG_2011_00002.jpg, etc... They would continue on as 00003, 00004, 00005, all the way up to ~50000.
I know how to use ren to change a name or add characters, but I can't figure out how to remove characters from the name,
Anyone know how?
