Help needed renaming files

Postby CCarmichael » Mon May 16, 2016 2:22 pm

I am having problems renaming folders using Bulk Rename Utility and I was wanting to see if I could get a hand in solving my problem.

I want to rename a folder with the format:

07-05 - (Name) - (Title)

to

[05-07] (Name) - (Title)

If someone could help me by sending me instructions on how to adjust the settings so I can achieve this, I would be incredibly grateful.

Something like ^(\d\d)-(\d\d) - (.*)
to [\2-\1] \3

??
I know it's long-winded, but worked on your example. Best

This probably a really stupid question but how would I go about inputting this?
Thanks

1:Regex

Match: ^(\d\d)-(\d\d) - (.*)
Replace: [\2-\1] \3

Thanks very much. I realised why this isn't working. It's because the brackets in my example don't exist. I put them there to emphasise what text is present. An example of what I should have put in originally is shown below:

08-13 - Name - Title

to

[13-08] Name - Title

Sorry for any inconvenience
