Repair file names with invalid characters on the command line with the free Swiss File Knife for Windows.

Add missing file times using the filename text, on files created by embedded devices like personal video recorders.
sfk fixfile [options] dirname

repair file names with invalid characters, add missing
file time from filename, on files created by embedded
devices like personal video recorders (PVR).

use with care! filenames and times may be changed completely
and this cannot be undone. this command runs in simulation mode
by default, previewing changes without modifying anything.
add -yes to really apply changes.

limited file selection
   this command is for Windows only and supports only
   a few file selection options like -dir and -file.

options
 -dewide    if any unicode 16 bit wide characters are found
            in the filename (making the file unusable for
            many command line applications) remove them.
            careful! use this only if just a few of such
            characters exist, otherwise the file may become
            completely unusable.
 -setftime  if date and time info are found in the name like in
              myfile-01312015-1740-news.mpg
            then extract date and time. if the file has no date
            or a different date change it to the found date.
 -setndate  change date text in filename to normalized
            flat format YMD like 20150113
 -defull    same as -dewide -setftime -setndate
 -withsub   include sub directories (not default)

   as they need plain ASCII filenames to work with.
   sfk rename   flexible mass rename of files

examples
   sfk fixfile -defull f:\HBPVR .mts .meta
      fix filenames and times of .mts and .meta files
      in the recording folder of a XORO HRK 7560.
      for example, it will change a filename like
         ?S?uper_?R?TL-01312015-0540-SpongeBob.mts
      to
         Super_RTL-20150131-0540-SpongeBob.mts
      stripping four wide characters and also setting
      the file date/time to 31.01.2015 at 05:40.

   sfk fixfile -defull -dir f:\HBPVR -file .mts .meta
      same as above using long file selection syntax.
