    Recover the filename from renamed files

    joachims25232702 Level 1

      Once I have ranked and sorted my yearly family photos, I rename them with a sequence number to hard-code the order: "Year_SequenceNumber_Filename".

      Occasionally I find photos in my catalog that I had overlooked and want to include them in that sequence.

      So I place that photo manually in the correct order. And then I would like to rename the whole yearly collection with a new sequence number. But this would then create a new file name with

      Year_NewSequenceNumber__Year_OldSequenceNumber_xxx. And if I find more photos later, it becomes a mess.

      Is there a way that I can recover the original file name from my Y_SN_xxx filename? Like filtering on the second "_" and use everything behind that "_"?
