How can I mass rename files from the command line or using a 3rd party tool?
We have several files with filenames similar to below:
Organizing_your_day_in_acute_care_-_Flash_(Medium)_-_20120516_12.04.02PM.mp4 Developing_a_Business_Plan_-_IT_Projects_-_Flash_(Medium)_-_20120529_09.39.09PM.mp4 GI_Medications_-_Flash_(Medium)_-_20120607_11.35.50AM.mp4 Effectiveness_and_Data_and_Information_Set_-_Flash_(Large)_-_20120208_02.41.28PM.mp4 Adult_Learning_-_Theory_-_Flash_(Medium)_-_20100519_05.25.02PM.mp4
What I'd like to do is create a batch script to rename these files so that all the underscores are removed and everything after the "_-_Flash" string is removed, essentially leaving the files as so:
Organizing your day in acute care.mp4 Developing a Business Plan - IT Projects.mp4 GI Medications.mp4 Effectiveness and Data and Information Set.mp4 Adult Learning - Theory.mp4
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
