Would like to be able to find and delete all files that have a certain type of prefix. This prefix is 8 characters long and alphanumeric. It is followed by a . then the rest of the file name. These are copies of the original files I want to keep with the only difference being the addition of the additional prefix starter. Please see the following example.

bottom_pour_plate_setup_entry.jpg
13C8486V.bottom_pour_plate_setup_entry.jpg

The first file name is the proper one to keep and the other is an example of the one(s) to remove. The 8 characters in the additional part of the prefix are random.

Any suggestions are welcomed.

Thanks

You could search for all file names with an 8 digit prefix and a .jpg extension using a regular expression like this:

File name: ^\w{8}\..+\.jpg

You can switch to Regular Expression in the Options tab.
