Replace "&" character in filenames of multiple files

m0nk3yza used Ask the Experts™
Hi Guys,

I need to upload a large number of files and folders onto our SharePoint server.

SharePoint doesn't seem to accept the & (ampersand) character in a filename (many of the filenames contain the & character).

How can I automate the task of replacing the "&" character with "_" (underscore) in all these files and folders?

I dual-boot Win 7 with Ubuntu, so I can do the conversion process on either Windows or Linux.

Thank you.
