Powershell one-line script to remove the bracketed date from filenames

Get-ChildItem -Recurse | Where-Object { $_.Name -match " ?\(\d\d\d\d_\d\d_\d\d \d\d_\d\d_\d\d UTC\)" } | Rename-Item -NewName { $_.Name -replace " ?\(\d\d\d\d_\d\d_\d\d \d\d_\d\d_\d\d UTC\)", ""}
Removes the annoying filehistory filename default of adding a really long UTC time and date string to every single file. Non recursive so you will have to run this per directory.
