File Property Edit Pro

CNET Editors' review

Changing file attributes in one fell swoop is extremely easy, thanks to this well-designed and capable program. Despite a short trial period and file limit, we were still able to fully experience its superb performance.

File Property Edit has a very clean and easy-to-navigate interface that will appeal to all user levels. It flows in such a way that you know exactly where to go first. We added an entire folder and opted to include paths and subdirectories. The program also provides a filter feature. The contents of our folder immediately appeared in the interface window. From there, we had the options of modifying the file time and setting file attributes, such as archive, read only, hidden, and offline, to name a few. As soon as we clicked the Apply Changes button, the program instantly modified the file attributes. We were able to just as easily change the file attributes back to normal using the same steps, as well as by clicking the Undo Changes button. We were reminded of the program's 50-file trial limitation, but other than that the process worked exactly as it would with the registered version.

We would have liked to have seen a built-in Help feature, but there is a link to the publisher's Web site for help. We also would have liked to have a longer trial period than the given 15 days. Still, if you're looking for a no-nonsense file manager, this program is a worthy contender.

    "makes changes to file names very well"

    January 25, 2014  |   By sff2000

    Version: File Property Edit Pro 3.75

    Pros

    After a few false starts I am able to make mass changes to files names easily.

    Cons

    I didn't get the structure at first but once that became clear, it was fine. The help file assumes too much.

    "The best EXIF editor (reviewing free edition)"

    September 14, 2013  |   By VladislavB

    Version: File Property Edit Pro 3.75

    Pros

    I can not confirm ANY of the criticism expressed here years ago by other reviewers. As of Sep 2013 This product simply WORKS as described. In my experience this is the best free EXIF editor for Windows.

    Cons

    No EXIF string value search.

    Summary

    I checked all EXIF editors Google found looking for a free tool, and this is the only one which simply works as described. It is fast, reliable, and free (there is also paid edition which I did not use yet). Other people criticized it heavily in the past, so maybe the product was improved that much since 2010-2011. I am writing this in Sep 2013, and my experience is extremely positive. I checked many similar tools after thorough Google search, and found nothing worth mentioning (I installed and tested many): some were EXIF viewers only (no editing), some were clumsy addons, some were command line tools, some were EXIF removers, but not proper editors -- nothing as simple and elegant as the File Property Edit. ALSO (as explained in the program "Help") the Free edition does not have any time limitations, and it can be used and updated to the future versions for free! Maybe I missed something, maybe there exists another similar tool from another developer, but at this point in time I am not aware of any other comparable and free tool.
