I know the basics of batch renaming files, but can't seem to figure out if this is possible:


I have a number of files scattered across different projects and folders.

These files are named ABC-DEF-xxxxxxx

The xxxxxxx is unique to each file, and non-sequential (sometimes just text words).


So I am wondering is if there a way to batch remove the "ABC-DEF-" from the master file name and leave everything else in the name unchanged?

I should say...without doing a tremendous amount of work like exporting the files from Aperture, changing the names somehow, then re-importing (which I think would be lots of work, esp since the files are scattered across different projects/folders).



Thanks much everyone!
