    Remove part file name in bunch of files


    I have a bunch of files that have the same name in all the files. I do not want to go through all 244 files and remove it manually. They are MP3's that I have purchased and saved. I got hit with ransonware a few weeks ago, and it renamed all of my mp3's with the extension .id[42B18849-2275].[checkcheck07@qq.com]. I was able to pull all of those files into a converter and convert them to mp3 again, and they now work, but every single one of them has .id[42B18849-2275].[checkcheck07@qq.com]. How can I remove that part from all of the files at once?

    If the MP3's have the original name as well as the Ransomware name, you can Highlight all of the files, and choose Rename, and delete the part of the name you don't want.

    You have a choice between spending the time required to learn a renaming program or spending the time needed to rename the files manually.

    The path of least resistance might be to do it manually, 10 or 20 files a day.

    You might be able to figure out the renamer application in an hour or less; or in 10 hours. I have no idea how easily you learn that type of thing.

    I've faced the same issue with mp3s, but I was faced with thousands to rename, so I took the time necessary to learn the application.

    It might be simpler than you think if all files are incorrectly named in the same way--such as having all the bad stuff immediately before the ".mp3"------or if you need to delete a certain number of characters from one end of the file name.

    The interface and available help files of the renamer application is critical. Some are much more intuitive than others.

    You might have some way to recover by using Windows file history.........I don't know, I've never used it.

    This is easy. First get a copy of Bulk Rename Utility:

    Download - Bulk Rename Utility

    Take a look at this screenshot:

    Drag all the files into the Window and Select All. (1) Now any change you make will be reflected in the filenames on the Right Side. Use the Remove Last Option (2) until the file names are correct. Then hit Rename (3) and the changes will take effect.

    PowerShell:

    Code:
    $FileLoc = 'c:\Files\Rescuesd'
    $ext = '.id[42B18849-2275].[checkcheck07@qq.com]'
    
    Get-ChildItem -Path $FileLoc -File | # Add '-Recdrse' to include files from subfolders
     ?{$_.Name -match '\.id\[42B18849-2275\]\.\[checkcheck07@qq\.com\]$' } |
     Rename-Item -NewName {$_.Name.Replace($ext, '.mp3')}

    What kind of converter is this ? did you pay the ransom to get the decryptor ?

    I'm also hit by this, will you kindly share if you have ways to recover ?
