I know that Windows typically won't let you, but I have a bunch of ripped lossless albums in which the filenames begin with a space (must have been an extra space in dbPoweramp somewhere).

I've noticed that when certain programs try to copy them, they disregard the space and end up copying the file twice.

I am looking for a way to easily hunt down these files that begin with a space (i believe there could be a few hundred) and then easily remove that space. I am running Windows 7.

any thoughts on how to easily track them down?

Any decent music player/tagger should let you filter tracks by file names.

In foobar2000, for example, you could do a search for
"$left(%filename%,1)" IS " "
