There are over 300 sub-folders in one folder all have the same name formatting:
,where "x"s are various number of characters, "yyyy" is year number (2012 for example). I want rename them to:
xxxxxxx.yyyy (remove anything before and including "-", and remove anything after year).

Is there a fast way to do it?
