How can I archieve to remove all the signs after the first combination in the file name of the first "_" and the first numeral, e.g. "1" (e.g. "_1", "_2"," _3"...) having a dot after the first or second numeral (e.g. "_1." or "_10."), including removing this combination to get a clean file name.

And additional:

Some examples:

So it should look like:

Das_Haus_der_Daemonen.avi
Im_Netz.avi

Respectively, at the end:
Das Haus der Daemonen.avi
Im Netz.avi

Try to add the Remove Pattern method and configure it like this:
Pattern: _\d\d\..*
Use regular expressions: Checked
Apply to: Name

It removes anything from and underscore + two digits and a dot. If some dates are formatted differently you will need another pattern.

Many thanks, Kim,

It works great.

<<<It removes anything from and underscore + two digits and a dot. If some dates are formatted differently you will need another pattern.

So, if there were one digit and a dot, I additionally could open a new "Remove pattern" box, same settings like the first one and add (instead of "_\d\d\..*") that: _\d\..*

Yes you are right. You can add an extra method with that pattern.

Unfortunately it is not possible to get notifications when new replies are added. It is still on my todo list.

Thank you, Kim,

OK, no notifications, so I periodically just have to have a look at my own postings.

Thanks again

Hello,

I am trying to remove everything after a year such as (2012). I have used the following
REMOVE PATTERN
(\d\d\d\d).*
RegEX

but unfortunatly it deletes the 4 digits of the year

exemple:
Brazil (2103) taken by John ==> Brazil (

I am looking for
Brazil (2103) taken by John ==> Brazil (2013)

Thank you!

Try using the replace method instead and replace the pattern with
\1
The \1 will insert the part matched by ( )
