Help to filter and remove accent chars

Postby fabius » Fri Mar 10, 2017 8:15 pm

Hello
I have a very large dir with many and many accent chars.
I need to filter them and remove accent chars (wich i know how to do)
I just would like to display only files with accent chars in name.
thank you

My way to go about it would be to use Everything (1.4.1 Beta) to find the files, select them all in Everything, then drag them into BRU.


(Everything can match (or not) diacritics, can do regex...
Sometimes, there seems to be issues with d&d into BRU, so might just want to double check after your renames that something didn't make its way into BRU, & if not, you can just pick up the stragglers.)
