Well, I do not pretend to be clever with the command line, but I do know that if you have a filename (or directory name) with spaces, you can either "escape" the spaces, or, easier for you, put the "spaced name in quotes". So now you should be able to improve on scuzzman's one-liner.
I never use spaces in filenames - they are a pain.
