Batch-change existing daily notes’ date format

What I’m trying to do

I used to have daily notes titled as YYYYMMDD. I lately reconfigured it to the ISO format YYYY-MM-DD so that it can better match other set-up I am using. However, all the existing notes are still left in YYYYMMDD when I altered the settings in Obsidian, so are the corresponding backlinks inside these files.

How can I batch-change the data format in all the old daily notes to to match this format, while updating and retaining all wikilinks?


On Mac I do these types of things with an app called TextSoap, using REGEX (regular expressions). I’m sure there’s a Windows equivalent.
