Removing all caracters after last dash including dash

Postby dw600 » Sat Apr 02, 2016 7:22 pm

I have about 1500 songs that when I created them the file name included the genre as the last part of the name and I would like to remove it from all the file names.

Example:
Anthology 1 (CD1) - 01 - Free As A Bird - RockPop
Billy Joel - Greatest Hits CD1 - 01 - Piano Man - Rock

Change to:
Anthology 1 (CD1) - 01 - Free As A Bird
Billy Joel - Greatest Hits CD1 - 01 - Piano Man

Match:

Replace:
