Replace method...
Replace: ^.*?(?=[A-Z])
with: blank
Occurrence: 1st
Case sensitive
Use regular expressions

Explanation...
"^" means start matching at the beginning of the filename
".*" matches any number of any characters
"?" modifies ".*" to capture the minimum number of characters (otherwise it will be "greedy" and match every character up to the last upper case letter)
"(?=[A-Z])" is a "lookahead" - the previously defined pattern is only matched if it is followed by the character(s) defined in the pattern following "=" - ie "[A-Z] in this case, which matches any single uppercase letter.
