File Date Changing Software Screenshot

It's probably still going to be a few years before we have access to a time machine. But your files can start warping space and time -- today!

This sharp application lets you alter the dates that Windows has attached to all of your files. The date of creation, recent access, and modification are no longer trapped in time, they are yours to command!

Select individual files or a batch of files based on selected features and modify the time-stamp information in an intuitively mapped out interface. You even can specify time-related file attributes, from the year to the millisecond.

A great application for digitizing date-sensitive paper documents, saving you space and time. But you hardly need to worry about saving time when you have this much control over time!

Big Bad Wolf I just can't understand how Bitsdujour allow this type of software to be listed.

Seriously, this software takes less than 1 hour for even a beginner programmer to write. Yet, this 'company', which probably is a fly-by-night company is trying to sell this?

I strongly encourage some quality control on Bitsdujour part.

Dave Yankov I think you overestimate the abilities of many customers.

This is an easy way for office workers to perform a standard date 'touch' to files.

While you or I could probably easily create this type of application, we'd probably forgo the user interface.

This software has its place.

Barry Kintner I'd love to be able to write something so simple - but I am not able to do so - the software is of interest - and thank goodness for the price (and the publicity that it even exists). I want to be able to maintain that original creation date when I need to correct some missed typo or only change the day I printed a document. Thanks for everything here.

Andreas Hoffmann @Big Bad:
Even if you are an experienced programme, you can't realize a touch-software in a period that has the worth of $12.
Therefore this software has a reason to be sold here and I'm very happy about BdJ. Found a lot of very good software, sometimes even rather simple but useful that I never saw w/o BdJ. And always for a very good price.
Thanks a lot for your work, Nico!

Not a Programmer Haha! Yes, I agree. Not sure the fortune it would take me to get a computer science degree is worth the $12 I'd save creating my own file date changing software.

@HotHotSoftware: thanks for an simple, straightforward, inexpensive, and for some of us, much-needed utility.

Truman Roper I used to set the time stamp to be equal to the version of the ZIpped software package and files inside so I could tell at a glance what version of the package I was working with. For instance, a time stamp of 1:02am was version 1.02 while version 3.40 would get a time stamp of 3:40am, etc. Anything found with a 1:02 pm time stamp was probably the real time 1:02pm . Very useful program for anyone who collects versions of files.

Big Bad Wolf Wait, you guys aren't programmers, but I guess that doesn't mean you guys don't know how to do a search, right? Because if you guys aren't will just do a simple search, you will find that similar programs are available for free.

Come to think of it, HHS does have another software to generate names. I'm beginning to see how useful it is...

Rich Lang $12, are you kidding me?? I make $150 and hour and I have NO idea how to program or the time to learn. BBW is caught in his own tiny vacuum world that may apply to 1/2 of of 1% of the people. If you don't need the program don't buy it, DUH!! But you want to keep others from having that option?? Scary.

I think a more legitimate claim might be making this available to those that are going to abuse faking when docs are created or altered.

Big Bad Wolf I fail to see how you address that there are *free* programs out there that does the same. I would think someone who make $150 / hr to know how to do a simple search after reading these posts. I guess that explains the tiny vacuum world part perfectly.

Seriously, if you feel you have money to throw, please donate it to some worthly causes instead.

Big Bad Wolf Sorry for the double post, but for those interested to see how trivial it is to modify the time, please check out:

Roger Thomasson Wow, I didn't expect a humble time-stamp changer to generate such controversy!

Just keep it nice, folks :-)

Michael M Like Big Bad says, do a Google search. There are many, many programs out there that are freeware that do the same thing someone tries to charge people for.

Personally, I object to a supposed "developer" taking someone's freeware code, changing the interface a little, then charging newbies or the unaware money for the freeware.

That's possibly an FTC (Federal Trade Commission) violation. There's a law that prohibits charging unsuspecting consumers for information or products that are are available for free.

Scammers continue to charge people for government or consumer information that is plastered all over the Net for free. Those brochures, for example, that say "Student loan information" "Increase you social security" or "Pay 10% of taxes that you owe."

I also note that this developer's website looks kind of fly by night. (I have websites and have been on the Net since 1995. So I know a flake when I see one.)

Rich Lang I believe that you will find there is absolutely no FTC regulation for taking information that is public domain and selling to the public.

It is not unusual for companies to take public information that may be hard to assimilate and then turn around and put it in a very user-friendly format.

Also consider that some people might not know that this ability even exists. If this person did the marketing to make others aware that it does exist then users will have a utility that they otherwise would not know about. He is serving a purpose from 'marketing awareness, alone.
