DirDate is a System Utilities::Shell Tools software developed by DataMystic. After our trial and test, the software was found to be official, secure and free. Here is the official description for DirDate: DirDate is a command line tool that can easily be automated to change folder and file last modification date, creation date or last access dates. It can use a reference file (where you 'lift' the date from an existing file), the current date/time or a series of YEAR=, MONTH=, DAY=, HOUR=, MIN=, SEC= and MSEC= commands. EXIF support - set file create and modified dates to EXIF camera Date Taken dates stored in your JPG, PSD or TIF photo files, with easy DST or time zone adjustment. You can also set modified dates to create dates, or create dates to modified dates minus one hour etc. It can process files in subfolders, handles read-only files and it has a preview mode so that you can see which files will be modified. -DIRFIX mode can intelligently set folder dates after a backup/ restore or copy has reset all folder creation dates. -FILEFIX mode fixes modified dates that are earlier than create dates. -REPORT mode saves dates from one folder and then applies them to a new folder. This is extremely handy for saving folder creation dates from an old computer when you copy photos, documents etc across to a new computer, as the folder creation date is NEVER preserved by file copying software. New! Unicode filenames are supported. You can set file date and times right down to the 0.1 microseconds (100 nanosecond increments), or even tweak existing times up and down.
Change Directory and File Dates with DirDate. DOS does not provide any capabilities to change the date of directories or
volume labels, and this is the gap that DirDate fills. DirDate can change
any part of the date and/or time on any disk file, directory or volume
label, whether it is located in the root directory or a subdirectory. It
can be used to indicate to search utilities that the contents of a
directory have been updated. DirDate skips altering Windows 95 long
filenames. Any part of the date and/or time can be set to the current
date/time, or to a specified value. Dates may be set to the same date as
that of a reference file, or to the date of a reference file modified by
subsequent values. you can download DirDate 6.5 free now.
