Anyone have a good solution to rename recursively all the files in a directory tree that begin in _ or contain ()!$% etc?  I am trying to start a massive FTP upload but it fails due to the names.  I have already used CMD to recursively remove temp files and such but the ren command doesn't work recursively.
