I have a folder which contains a number of files beginning with an underscore. I would simply like to have a job that will rename all those files removing the underscore. Maybe this is simple and I'm just not seeing it, but I can't seem to figure out how to get this working. I'd appreciate any help anyone can give me.

Thanks.

Hi

Just use the rename file task.

Write the folder you want to search in. Check "include subfolders", if needed.
In the "include file mask" section you could for example write: _*.txt

In rename settings, you check the "Post process mask..." box. Do a simple replace like this: {STRING(Replace|{NEWNAME()}|_|)}
