open command prompt
navigate to folder with files
ren *.*.* *.*.txt
That is kind of vague.
But I can't get it to work.
Anyways, I have a major problem. I cant open the file to even rename it. I cant drag it into BRU, I can't open it in lockhunter, unlocker, anything. The file name is so long I can't even open it, click on it or check properties I get the same message. Error: "The filename or extension is too long."
I tried 2 programs RenameMaestro and BulkRenameUtility-- I am new to both programs. So far Im not able to add the files to the program.
The file name is so long for a bunch of my files I can't even transfer them to my external hd or rename them by hand.
Once I do get this sorted out. What would be the best setting if I wanted to keep the first 20 characters and last 10 but delete anything in between or delete anything in excess of 80 characters for example?
