How to remove track numbers preceding filenames in XP?
Thu, 03/24/2005 - 23:19
My music directory contains a few hundred filenames with track numbers preceding them.
01 Basin Street
01 Chega de Saudad
Some filenames have hyphens, others don't
As a result I am unable to find my tunes alphabetically.
Can anyone point me to a utility which will allow me to eliminate the numbers (and hyphens) without doing each filename separately?

Trim filenames with this handy utility, which can even read the ID3 tags and name the file as you wish,
for PC it's called A Better File Rename:
for Mac it's called A Better Finder Rename:
That app is priceless. I built a drop-applet that strips all weird punctuation, spaces and excess characters from my audio files. Here's the rules:
strip _'"’!?#(),+&.* /: (includes 1 whitespace)
ignore file ending
