Anyone who works with digital images or other files that tend to get organized by date knows that sometimes things can run amok; why are last month's vacation photos showing up with images from 2001? Whether the dates have been changed by some technological error or you have some other reason to adjust the Created, Modified, and Accessed dates of a file, File Date Changer makes this task a snap.
File Date Changer does exactly what the name implies, and nothing more; if you need to edit a file's metadata, this program isn't going to do it. The program's interface is straightforward, with buttons for selecting files and menus that let users change the dates and times that the files were created, modified, and last accessed. A check box lets users enable or disable each of these, so if you need to change the date the file was created but not the date it was modified, for example, that's no problem. File Date Changer supports batch processing, a very handy feature when you have a whole bunch of files that need to have their dates changed. There's no Help file, but there's really no need for one, either; the program is extremely easy to use, and anyone who understands the concept of changing a file's dates to begin with should have no trouble figuring it out. We tried File Date Changer with both individual files and batches of them, and we encountered no problems; the program quickly changed the dates and times of our files as instructed. We think File Date Changer is a great program to have around for when file date issues crop up, which they almost inevitably do at some point.
File Date Changer installs and uninstalls without issues.
From Z.A. Software:
This program enables the user to alter the "Date Created", "Date Modified" and "Last Accessed" attributes of any file (or multiple files at once) with the click of a button. The uses for a program like this are countless. No install necessary. Windows XP, Vista, 7 compatible.
Cannot read in existing date/time stamp. Cannot easily change only one parameter, such as month or day or year.
*** Was working great. After using utility for some time, date field becomes blank in Windows File Explorer. "Created", "Modified", & "Access" date show modified parameters in file properties but not in Windows File Explorer. Strange one.
