Hi. I want to run this script on on files in H:\unrenamedFiles

I tried cd  H:\unrenamedFiles
but cannot seem to get out of the C drive.

The purpose of the script is to rename all the files in the directory.
Is there a way to do this on the external drive?
Thank you.
perl -e "rename $_,(/([^\d_]*)_?(\d*)-?(\d*)-?(\d*)_?([\d-]*)(.*)/,qq($4-$3-$2_$5_$1$6)) or warn qq($_ $!) for <tweets_*.csv> "

Hi. I forgot to say this is windows.

'H:\' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
