Need to rename 50,000 MP3 Files best way Help
Posted on 2013-12-23
I have over 50,000 .MP3 files on my USB drive and then number is growing.
Building a SQL database to catalog on the files.
I am trying to cleanup the file names.
I would like them to be this format.
currently they are
01 - Songname.mp3
Been doing a lot of copy and paste, I just copy the album name from the folder name and paste it between two - - then delete spaces etc. Lots of work
I know of how to rename multiple files using F2 in explorer but that does not give me the results I need.
Would be nice like in excel where you can do a find and replace.
No such option in explorer
Looked at third party apps and they are geared toward photo renaming.
I did see one article saying that in Powershell you can do more but not to familiar with powershell.
Any one have an example or idea on how I can do this with out having to click on each and everyone of the files individually.
