Using the Remove (5) with Filters (12)

Postby AndersFamily » Sun Mar 19, 2023 3:13 pm

I am trying to use the "Remove (5)" function but have it work on all sub folders as well using "Filters (12)". Basically I am trying to remove the following
" (2022_03_17 14_54_39 UTC)" not including the quotation marks" from all files. The dates are different also so I will be using the Special Characters function in the "Remove (5)" panel.

Note. this was caused by Moving files from Windows restore on my external drive to my PC after a crash. Perhaps you can create another Panel for other Dum Dum's like me who moved the files from the Restore Utility rather that going through the Restore panel. Opps....

Thanks.

Hi , you could remove last N characters with Remove (5) if (2022_03_17 14_54_39 UTC) is always of the same length.

OK, but will it work for all subfolders? I tries but get a message "There are no items that need renaming", and the rename button is Ghosted. I selected a Folder that has 2 Sub-Folders in it.

Yes, activate the option "subfolders" in filters (12) then you need to select all files and/orfolders you wish to rename.
