I need to rename about 30,000 files. an example is 810-5500.dwg to 5500.dwg. Does anybody know of any batch renamer or possiably a DOS command that could do this?

There are many freeware Windows renaming programs out there if you just want to look and try one or more. Try a search in your favorite search engine, there is nothing magical about renaming DWG files.
