My folder goes something like this: 1986 Firestone Guard

I want to rename the 5 character which is a space to space-space.

I am using the Renaming Method List.

I have tried everything that I could find on the forums but I can't seem to get it right.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Use the "Replace" method...

Text to be replaced: Space
Replace with: Space-Space
Occurrence: 1st

If you try the same technique using a "List replace" method then BOTH spaces will be replaced - as I suspect you may have found. You can get round this issue using a regular expression...

Text to be replaced: (^[^ ]* )
Replace with: \1-Space
Use regular expressions: Selected
