How to remove track numbers from filenames?


#1

I have track numbers preceding filenames in hundreds of files. eg
01 - Billie's Bounce.mp3
01 - Any Time.mp3

Can anyone tell me how to remove these numerals other than manually. I have hundreds of them.

Any help much appreciated.
Thanks

There are many paths which lead to Rome...

If you have the title tag field filled in, you can use the Tag-Filename assistant with "%title%" as formatstring.

If not, you can either use an action which formats the "_FILENAME" field using this string: "$mid(%title%,6,$len(%title%))" or create a RegEx action which replaces "^\d* - " with nothing in "_FILENAME", as well.

Thanks man. I owe you.

Your first suggestion worked a treat. I didn't understand the 2nd.
