Hi,

At the moment have a load of DS games on my vista machine that are named such as:

0001 call of duty eu

however if I look through the list I could also have

1045 call of duty us

Anybody know of a good program to perform a batch file rename...

Basically I want the 4 digit number removed from the start of the filename

Cheers

Since no-one else has replied, I'll throw this out there. In linux it'd be easy with a simple script. Have you got a linux boot CD (like knoppix or backtrack). If so, then I'll give you a one-liner to do it. Alternatively, you could install Cygwin to get you a proper shell.

Alternatively, I believe Vista has an improved shell language that can probably do this sort of thing, but I've never used it so I couldn't tell you how.

Get yourself a linux boot CD and post back.

The command will most likely be something like:
Code:
