I am trying to address an issue with filenames....

Avatar (2015) Audio 5 1 as example

Your request doesn't make any sense.

Replace " 5 1" with nothing would solve your example but that is so obvious that it can't be your problem!

What on earth do you mean by "any number that includes numbers 1 or 1"

Example #1:

Folder = A Space Program (2015) {1080p] [BluRay]

Resulting rename = A Space Program 201080p

[BluRay] goes away but (2015) gets modified....

I would like it to rename to A Space Program (2015) 1080p

Example #2:

Folder MI-5 (2015) [1080p] [BluRay] [5.1]

Resulting rename = MI5 201080p

I'd like to keep MI-5 but some how that gets modified as well

I just want to remove [5.1]

Sorry for not being more specific.......

Your description is still very confused - and how on earth do you expect anyone to help you sort out what you are doing wrong if you don't make the effort to tell us what you have tried!

First I'm assuming that you have mistyped your first example and that "{1080p]" should have been "[1080p]".

If so then...
Replace: "\[(.*?)\].*"
With: "\1"
Use regular expressions

Depending on what you actually want this may work for both examples.

However if you really mean that you want to remove only " [5.1]" (ie keep " [BluRay]") then...
Replace: " \[\d\.\d]"
with: leave blank
Use regular expressions

\d.\d will match any two digit decimal number in the format "x.y"
