    Removing Specific Letters From Multiple Filenames


    I have about 1,600 PDF files that I am working with. They all have specific individual file names. I am trying to organize them by only a portion of the file name. In order to do this, I need to delete or get rid of the first three characters of the file name and keep the remaining.


    This is what I have currently:

    And this is what I would like to have:

    Please let me know if this is possible and how to do it.


    Thanks,

    help. USB drive isn't assigned a drive letter.

    Any usb flash drive I plug into my computer isn't assigned a drive letter. The physical drive shows in the "safely remove hardware" but it doesnt show up in disk management. I have tried to populate the volume thru the safely remove hardware properties window and it does pop up in the list but it doesn't stay there. This isn't a format or assign a letter problem. It's more complicated then that. Maybe one of the services needed for usb drive management was disabled? Suggestions needed. btw external usb harddrives work fine.

    Remove Drive Letter Logistics

    I've always used disk management to assign (CHANGE) a permanent drive letter on a couple of my USB external backup drives. That works like a charm for backup jobs that require a set drive letter destination. But I got to wondering exactly what the other
    two disk management Options of ADD and REMOVE actually do.

    In other words does REMOVE (as I've read elsewhere) take the Drive Letter currently assigned to the Drive and remove it from not only the drive, but also from the list (i.e. the drop down list) in disk management you see when you want to change a letter.
    So that letter will no longer be available for assignment to any drive? What good does this accomplish?

    Can I add this drive letter back to the list with the ADD Option? If not what does the ADD Option do?

    I had previously though that REMOVE simply removed the letter assignment the disk and the letter would still be available in the disk management list. And the drive would just go back to being assigned the first available letter windows had from then on.

    Appreciate any confirmations on what exactly the ADD and REMOVE do.
