Dear all,

I hope you can help me with following task. I have several video-files on my PC and I want to delete some part of the filenames.

OLD names:
Forrest Gump - 136min 2001.avi
Forrest Gump - 136min 2001.backdrop.jpg
Forrest Gump - 136min 2001.avi.cuts
96 Hours - 94min 2012.mp4
96 Hours - 94min 2012.jpg
96 Hours - 94min 2012.mp4.cuts

I want to delete the whole part with " - ??min ????" and " - ???min ????".

NEW names:
Forrest Gump.avi
Forrest Gump.backdrop.jpg
Forrest Gump.avi.cuts
96 Hours.mp4
96 Hours.jpg
96 Hours.mp4.cuts

Thanks a lot in advance!
Kind regards, Hansi

Right click on that file and select 'Rename' Option
Once Done, Write the name whatever you wants. Its that much easy. Enjoy.

Dear Stefan, thanks a lot for your help.
Problem with your suggestion is, that I loose part of the extension which I need.
Is it possible to delete only until first dot?

OLD names:
Forrest Gump - 136min 2001.avi
Forrest Gump - 136min 2001.backdrop.jpg
Forrest Gump - 136min 2001.avi.cuts

I want to delete the whole part with " - ??min ????" and " - ???min ????".

NEW names:
Forrest Gump.avi
Forrest Gump.backdrop.jpg --> BUT I get: Forrest Gump.jpg --> also ".backdrop" is deleted
Forrest Gump.avi.cuts --> BUT I get: Forrest Gump.cuts --> also ".avi" is deleted

THANKS!!! ;-) Kind regards, Hansi

Upps, you're right, I missed that detail.


FROM:
Forrest Gump - 136min 2001.avi
Forrest Gump - 136min 2001.backdrop.jpg
Forrest Gump - 136min 2001.avi.cuts
96 Hours - 94min 2012.mp4
96 Hours - 94min 2012.jpg
96 Hours - 94min 2012.mp4.cuts
TO:
96 Hours.jpg
96 Hours.mp4
96 Hours.mp4.cuts
Forrest Gump.avi
Forrest Gump.avi.cuts
Forrest Gump.backdrop.jpg

RULE:
Remove everything after first "Space-Hyphen", but keep last part after dot too.



Try Replace (https://www.advancedrenamer.com/user_guide/metho d_replace)

Find: (.+) - [^.]+
Replace: \1
Apply to [Name ]
[x] Use regular expressions



I don't know why this works, it should not.


Rather this should work by following the regex rules:
Find: (.+) - [^.]+(.+)
Replace: \1\2
Apply to [Name ]
[x] Use regular expressions



Anyway, HTH?
