I had a user that had a folder of files that had a lot of .’s in the names. As an example:
They needed all of the .’s replaced with a space. Here is the contents of the batch file that I created to fix the issue:
@echo off setlocal enableextensions disabledelayedexpansion for %%a in (*) do ( set "filename=%%~na" setlocal enabledelayedexpansion for %%f in ("!filename:.= !") do ( endlocal ren "%%~fa" "%%~f%%~xa" ) )
All the user has to do is copy the .bat file into the directory that has the problem files and then run the .bat file.
This is a slightly modified version of the script found at: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/28558996/batch-file-for-replacing-dots-with-spaces-in-file-names
