CleanUp Rule

CleanUpRule.png

This rule cleans up the filenames from/for commonly used naming conventions for internet, peer-to-peer networks, and other resources. Multiple problems can be removed at once.

The parameters are as follows:

Parameter
Details
Strip out content of brackets A typical use of this option is to strip the needless comments attached to file-names, such as (best!!).
  • This option removes the brackets also.
  • You can select any/all of the various types of brackets.

If you do NOT want to delete the content within the brackets, use the Strip rule instead.

Replace these characters with spaces These characters occurring in the file names are removed and a space is inserted in their place.
Fix spaces Replace multiple consecutive spaces with a single space.

Remove spaces at the beginning and end of the base name.

Insert a space in front of capitalized letters Often words in the file name are just joined together, without spaces or underscores.

Each word begins with a capital letter, so that you can read it easily. This option can separate such words in the filename. For example, SeparateTheseWords.pdf becomes Separate These Words.pdf.

Prepare for SharePoint Prepares the file for hosting it on Microsoft Sharepoint.
  1. strip standard forbidden filename characters
  2. strip consecutive dots
  3. strip '#', '%', '~', '&'
  4. replace { and } with ( and )
Skip extension If this check box is unselected, the extension will be included in the rule.
