How to add certain letter before numbers in file name?

Postby Jakov » Sat Apr 17, 2021 4:45 pm

Hi All

Please I have a list of portable app with a file name such as
Hard Disk Sentinel 5.70.2 Portable
IObit Uninstaller Pro 10.4.0.12 Portable ...etc

So, how to add letter v (for version) before numbers in the file name in order to be :
Hard Disk Sentinel v5.70.2 Portable
IObit Uninstaller Pro v10.4.0.12 Portable.

Thanks in advance

Im thinking the easiest way is with RegEx(1) using a Match and Replace like...
(.* )(\d+\.\d+[.\d]* [Pp]ortable.*)
\1v\2

It wants "space" in front of 'number' and 'portable', and also wants 'number' to have at least 1 period.

My bro, I am sorry about annoying you, but please can you give regex code if I want to add certain text such as "Repack" before the certain text in the file name such as version number;
ex:
Abelssoft Tagman v2016.2.11
Ashampoo Red Ex v1.0.0 ... etc

I want to add "Repack" before file version in order to be :
Abelssoft Tagman Repack v2016.2.11
Ashampoo Red Ex Repack v1.0.0

I will be so happy if you give me the code
Again, million thanks
Jakov
