String replacement on folders

Hello, I have this that strips out unwanted characters in files and displays the version without the characters on the screen. I'm needing to do the same thing with the folders that I'm displaying. I need to do this because Joomla does not like spaces in the folder names but because of that when I show the folder its all one word. For example, if the name of the folder is Faux Woods Joomla will not allow the admin to put files in but if i have it as FauxWoods it works fine. What I would like to do is have the folder name be Faux_Woods and then strip out the _ when displaying the folder to the screen. Below is the code that is currently being used to strip out characters from files


foreach($files as $file) {
			chdir ($rootDir);
			if (is_dir("$file")){
				echo '<li class="folder"><div class="heading">'.$file.'</div>';
				getDirectory("$path/$file",($level+1));
				echo '</li>';
			} else {
				$info = pathinfo($file);
				$fileNameOnly = basename($file,'.'.$info['extension']);
				$file = str_replace(array('&',','), array('%26','%2C'), $file);
				$fileNameOnly2 = str_replace(array('_','&'), array(' ','&amp;'), $fileNameOnly);
				if (strpos($path, '/secure/') == FALSE)
					echo '<li class="file"><a href="/images/'.$path.'/'.$file.'" target="_blank">'.$fileNameOnly2.'</a></li>';
				else
					echo '<li class="file"><a href="/index.php?option=com_imagedownload&file=/images/'.$path.'/'.$file.'" target="_blank">'.$fileNameOnly2.'</a></li>';
			}
		}
		echo '</ul>';
	} else {
		echo '<ul><li class="noDownloads">No Downloads Available.</li></ul>';
	}
}
