I would have thought split files too, but if not then your out of luck for fully automatic ways to fix it (at least as far as I know).

One way to go might be to
- use the command line to pipe the names of the files into a text file
dir /s /on /b *.* >filelisting.txt

- Then copy the contents of that text file and the .sfv file into 2 columns of a table in Word.
- Then make sure that the columns match up (old filename to new filename).
-Then use some nifty fine and replace to turn the table into lots of "rename" lines...

rename old-filename-with-numbers name-from-sfv-file

It's a bit tricky to get right, but I do that kind of thing often (digital pictures mainly) and it's a lot faster than renaming 300 files by hand
