Remove a set of special characters from a bunch of folders

Postby driven13 » Tue Dec 27, 2016 5:45 am

Hello all.

I have a folder with a bunch of other folders and files.

All those files and folders should NOT have these characters in their names: \, /, :, *, ?, ", <, >, |, #, {, }, %, ~, &

When running this program where do I enter these characters and what options would I choose so that it simply removes those characters from the names if it finds them...???

There are so many options that to a noobie like me if is a bit overwhelming.

Thanks in advance.

Code: Select all
5:Remove -> Chars:   \/:*?"<>|#{}%~&


And adjust, 12:Filters, as needed.


Note that some of those characters should not be valid characters in a (Windows) filename in any case.
