how do I remove spaces from file names?

When I span and organize my files they are going onto a server drive where I have Logitech media server. I would like to remove the spaces in the filenames and replace them with underscores. I could do this on the file system but then iTunes won't find them anymore.

Hey there, I'm so sorry I didn't get back to you sooner.


In fact, you should just be able to rename the files in the Finder, and iTunes will do a good job keeping up with those changes.


Of course, it would probably be easier to use some sort if batch renaming application, I'm sure there are a few options out there.


To make sure iTunes finds all the renamed files, you can use the "Locate Files..." option in TuneSpan.


But, it shouldn't be too big of a deal. iTunes does a really good job keeping track of file name changes and file moving around on a drive. It's when a file is moved to another drive that iTunes needs help from TuneSpan.
