Hi,

I have filenames like this: "part1 - something.mp3"
and I want to remove "part1 - " (part1 has different length),
that means everything up to and including the first " - ".
The result should be "something.mp3".

I have problems with the regular expression to do this.

Any help would be very nice. Thank you.

FROM:
"part1 - something.mp3"
TO:
"something.mp3"


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

Find: .+? - (.+)
Replace: \1
[x] Use regular expressions




Explanation:
'.+ - ' >> match one-or-more of any sign till last 'Space-Hyphen-Space'.
'.+? - ' >> the same, but non-greedy, so stop on first found 'Space-Hyphen-Space', in case there are more.
