Editors' Review

+

File Property Edit Free from Foryoursoft is a free tool that can alter file attributes such as the date and time a file was created or last modified, singly or in batches. It's a stripped-down version of a "Pro" shareware tool. While it's fully functional, requiring no purchase or registration to use its available features, some useful functions are available only in the paid version, such as Undo Changes, Export, and Change Other Properties.

During the installation, a nag screen informed us that we could purchase the Pro version at a discount. File Property Edit Free has an attractive, efficient layout that has an integrated shell color tool next to the button accessing the online Help file. However, there seems to be no options or settings beyond what's available on the interface, and many of those aren't available in the freeware. Controls let us add and filter files, select all, change file times in predetermined or custom methods, and perform a few other basic functions. In addition to the previously mentioned disabled functions, we couldn't use the Quickview or Add Variable functions, or any of the subfeatures of the disabled tools. Nevertheless, we were able to browse to and add files and quickly change the file time stamp from a drop-down list or enter custom time and date settings as well as change the following file attributes: Archive, ReadOnly, Hidden, System, Temporary, Offline, NotContentIndexed, and Normal. The tool processed a folder full of images in no time. Checking showed that File Property Edit Free had done its job; when we opened the properties sheet for an image, the file showed it had been created hours ago, not months ago when we'd originally downloaded it.

File properties editors are useful tools, and File Property Edit Free certainly does a good if basic job. We wonder if disabling the Undo Changes feature at a minimum reduces its usefulness. If you only need to change some basic attributes, it's worth a look. However, we've tried other freeware file properties editors, and we think it wouldn't hurt to have a look at some of them, too.

"Hijacked my browser"

December 12, 2014  |  By obahat

 |  Version: File Property Edit Free 3.75

Pros

None. Malaware. Didn't even start the app.

Cons

Installed 3 different applications even though I explicitly declined them in the installer. And then hijacked my browser.

Summary

Stay away.

"Better than a tylenol for Attribute issues!"

March 21, 2012  |  By batsdude

 |  Version: File Property Edit Free 3.59

Pros

How many times have you been stuck with an unchangeable file attribute, which stubbornly stays set, no matter what you do? This nifty little prog - at least so far- can do the edit in one nice little sweep, without the hassle of having to use safe mode, or 'Unlocker'.

Cons

None so far.

Summary

Nice little manager, without any bells or whistles. Just straight business.
