Find -exec script

Recommended Posts

I have a bunch of mp3 files with names like " - blahblah01.mp3", " - blahblah02.mp3" and so on.


I want to remove the " - " from the front of the file name. The spaces seem to make it interesting.


Here's what I have so far...


find . -name " - *.mp3" -execdir bash -c "mv `echo \"{}\"` `echo {} | sed 's/ - //'`" \;


Here's what I get:


mv: target `track1.mp3' is not a directory


Any suggestions?
