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.

"Not a great file modifier"

May 26, 2016  |  By kincha12

2016-05-26 17:51:10  |  By kincha12

 |  Version: File Date Changer 1.32

Pros

Changes the filenames to a certain extent

Cons

The modifier produces pixelated file names, dates and descriptions.

Summary

Basically wanted to modify a bunch of filenames and started playing around with it. The modified names were pixelated and didn't look authentic. Definitely better modifiers out there.

"Date Field Becomes Blank"

January 09, 2016  |  By Edric Tong

2016-01-09 22:08:05  |  By Edric Tong

 |  Version: File Date Changer 1.32

Pros

Easy to use.

Cons

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.

Summary

Win 8.1
There appears to be a bug.

"It cannot retain the original time information"

June 19, 2015  |  By Holybride

2015-06-19 21:48:14  |  By Holybride

 |  Version: File Date Changer 1.32

Pros

It doesn't solve my problem at all.

Cons

I wrongly set my camera to April while it should be June.
I just need to change the month, not the whole hours/minutes/seconds.
It cannot retain the original timestamp. I can't use it at all.

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

November 24, 2012  |  By pwallas

2012-11-24 18:22:50  |  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.
