Rename files containing ampersand

July 15, 2010 at 05:49:59
Specs: Windows Vista
I have files that contain an ampersand that I need to move. The basic move command doesn't work with any file like this, all the others are moved. I would like to run a batch rename command to rename these files to contain an AND vice &.

Thanks for your help,
Tim

Hello, you can use Quick File Rename to rename the files. You can get it from here.

Install it then just go to the Replace tab and add a rule to remove & apply to title. Hope this helps!! It should be easy and quick.

Embrace the Filename/Pathname by double quotes, e.g.

"C:\MyDir\Lilo & Stich.jpg"

The same for spaces and special charachters.

I have tried double quotes, MOVE doesn't like it.

Thanks though
