Bulk Remove everything after "_" character.

Postby Lunarpancake » Mon May 17, 2021 9:43 pm

Hello, new to Bulk Rename. Can someone explain how to change:

This:

F1_DiskStation_May-16-1919-2021_Conflict.fms

To:

F1.fms


Note: Will also have to be able to overwrite F1.fms since there is a corrupted file with the same name in each folder. Example: next folder will have a corrupted F2.fms and a restored F2_DiskStation_May-16-1919-2021_Conflict.fms that I need to change name and overwrite the F2.fms with.

Thanks!

Oh and the dates may not match.

Example:
_DiskStation_May-15-2117-2021_Conflict

_DiskStation_May-16-2117-2021_Conflict

Also, some files may have multiple underscores (_)

First, to put a checkmark inside the menu "Renaming Options, Advanced Options, Allow Overwrite/Delete Existing Files" !
For version 3.4.3.0, Remove(5) needs Crop==Special, so then putting _* inside the box to the right.

There is no "undo" for overwriting files!.... Its smart to make sure this setting does not get saved for the next time.
