Hello everyone! I want to copy bracket content from folder names into the beginning of the same folder names, but i don't know how can i do that.

For instance i have such folders:

name-name-(1001)-2010
name-name-(1002)-2010
name-name-(1003)-2010
name-name-(1004)-2010

What im trying to do is to copy those brackets into the beginning of folder names and then massively rename those folders, so they will look like this:

(1001) name-name-(1001)-2010
(1002) name-name-(1002)-2010
(1003) name-name-(1003)-2010
(1004) name-name-(1004)-2010

How can i do that? Is there any pattern that includes only what is inside brackets? Thanks in advance! :)
