Excel Delete last 12 characters of file names in external hard drive folder.

Good afternoon, I have an external hard drive with a folder named MP4. Within that folder there are about 500 MP4 files. What I would like to do is to delete the last twelve characters from EACH of the filenames. The 12 characters are firstly a SPACE, then followed by [abcwdefgh] for example including the brackets, the 12 characters are IDENTICAL at the end of EACH file though. Is there an easy way to do this please without the need to edit every single one?. Thanks in advance.
