How to Change Modify Date of a Group of Files?

Postby ncms1234 » Tue Aug 26, 2008 11:12 pm

I am evaluating the dirdate I am wondering how the batch file would be to change Modified date of group of files based on file names:
200808261500.jpg
200808261530.jpg
200808261600.jpg
200808261630.jpg

change modify Date to 20080826 and change modify Time to 1500, 1530, 1600 & 1630

Thanks N Advance

As per our email to you:

The easiest way would be to use a text tool like our TextPipe Pro to convert a file list (e.g. dos dir command) from this form:

200806301500.jpg
200806301530.jpg
200806301600.jpg

To:
"C:\Program Files\DataMystic\DirDate\dirdate.exe" –MODIFIED time=15:00 200806301500.jpg
"C:\Program Files\DataMystic\DirDate\dirdate.exe" –MODIFIED time=15:30 200806301530.jpg
"C:\Program Files\DataMystic\DirDate\dirdate.exe" –MODIFIED time=16:00 200806301600.jpg

We can send you a filter to make this change if you purchase DirDate and TextPipe Lite.

You can use ***(competitor name removed) trial (to apply changes in files) + TextPipe trial (to convert names)...
but DirDate is better :)

We just released a version of DirDate where you can generate a report in a batch file of all the dates - you can then edit this with a text editor, or even apply the batch file to a new file system!
