Move 4-digit year to beginning of file

Postby jettatdi » Sat Jun 17, 2017 7:17 pm

I would like to change multiple file names so that a four digit year is at the beginning of every file name

Escape from Alcatraz 1979 1080p
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre The Beginning 2006 1080p

Change both to:

1979 Escape from Alcatraz 1080p
2006 The Texas Chainsaw Massacre The Beginning 1080p

Thank you

RegEx (1)
Match: ^(.*\s)(\d{4}\s)(.*)$
Replace: \2\1\3
