Change Date of File

Tutorial by Stefan Trost | 08/04/2016 at 16:18

Each file has a file date or timestamp. When showing the file properties, you can see a timestamp for "Created", "Modified" and "Accessed". However, I cannot see any possibility in this dialog for changing the dates. How can I change the date of a file - or even better the dates of multiple files at once?

Answer: This is possible using the tool FileRenamer that is available for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. After stopping the program, just follow the following steps to change file dates:

  1. First, you have to add the files that you want to change the list in the program. For this, you can just drag and drop the files of your choice on to the application.
  2. On the right side, you can see a fold menu "Attributes" and below the points "Modified", "Created" and "Accessed". Activate the checkbox of the date or dates you want to change and enter your desired date under "Options" into the box.
  3. Now, you only have to click on "Apply Changes" in order to change all file dates of the files currently in your list.

By the way, the whole thing is not only working for files but also for folders. Folders can be dragged, dropped and edited onto the program in the same way as files. On the upper right, you can see the "Include" options where you can define whether folders should be added or files from the added folders.
