Hello,

I looked around but didn't find anything from the solution base that work for me.


I have a bunch of files within folder & sub folder that need to have special characters removed from the filename.
I need these characters remove from the Folder name as well if exist.
It could be replaced by an underscore _.

the following character need to be removed:
~
#
%
&
*
{
}
\
:
<
>
?
/
+
|
"
,


If the script can be run from the root of all theses folder and subfolder & files it would be great so i can just copy it there.


I am running windows 7 64 bit

Please help, thank you so much
