Editors' review

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.

    "Easy, does what it says, but not more"

    November 24, 2012   |   By pwallas

    Version: File Date Changer 1.32

    Pros

    Small utility makes it easy to change file dates, singly or in batch mode. Quick install, no need to read any help file to understand how to change dates.

    Cons

    Not multi-functional like some attribute changer programs, but then that's not what it claims to be.
