Batch change file dates

Is there a way to batch change the dates of files in EF?

I’ve been doing this by hand for years, one file at a time, and usually it isn’t a problem, but this time I had a bunch of them that needed to be changed, all to the same date, and couldn’t find anything.

I do understand that most people would never want to do that, and could even appreciate that it was difficult to change a date by accident.

Maybe there’s a hidden command somewhere? Or maybe a script?


Yes, this could be done by script. Which date (creation, modified) do you want to change?

It’s always the creation date.

Please see the new Batch Set Creation Date script.

Absolutely great!

I already had a few scripts installed but I think I’ll have a look at the long list of other scripts available.

Many thanks.
