Data Repository mzML file prep: removal of sample name

Hello Agilent Comunity-

I'm converting Agilent .d files to mzML format to deposit data into the Metabolomics Workbench.
To protect human data, I have to remove sample Names and assign a new layer of anonymization.

How can I remove metadata from .d Folders:

Is there a way to bulk remove or edit files that contain sample names from the .d folders to prevent this data from being included in the mzML files?
I found the sample_info.xml and worklist.xml files within the .d folders containing sample Name information.
Are there other files within the .d folders where the sample names are stored?

Alternatively, if the metadata is already in the mzML files, is there an effective method to scrape this information?

Thank you,
Zsuzsi
