I download a file.
Then I want to change the filename to filename without dots
.S00E00.mkv,.avi or .mp4.
The filename is everything before .S00
Everything after E00 I do not want except extention.
Send this file to an external HD with folder name = filename and subfolder with S00 name
Is this possible?
Without actually getting what the filename really looks like and what it should be in the end I’d say - Yes, it is possible.
But why would you like to do it for one file with PowerShell? And if you really want to do it in PowerShell - what have you tried so far? Are you aware that there are tools available for file rename jobs like PowerToys PowerRename?

Yes I have tried PowerRename and like it!
This is how far I have gone
$files = Get-ChildItem -Path /Users/curt-ingehenning/Downloads/_KLARA
foreach ($file in $files)
Rename-Item $file $newFileName
OK, I assume it is about more than one file, isn’t it?
