Hi guys,

Wondered if any of you could help me with this? Basically I have thousands of files that need this: "/" and such symbols out. Is there a way I can batch do this? Or do I gotta get old school on them

Any help will literally save days of my life

Thanks!

You could also use automator for this, which you will find in your applications folder.
