    Attribute Changer (Need robust application)


    Hello. I have many pictures which I take from my windows phone.
    When I copy the pictures onto my hard drive, it changes all the dates "created" to the date they were "copied" over.
    However the date created remains the same on the file.

    Is there a program, that can change the attributes for "date created" to what the "date modified" or "date taken"
    was, & vic versa?

    I am looking for a date recorded attribute in windows 8 (I used to be able to see this in windows 7).
    I would need to do this for both MP4 & JPEGs.

    Really appreciate your guidance here.

    Hello! Appreciate the suggestion BUT it seems you would have to manually choose which time/date would be correct for each file.
    I am looking for a way to copy the original modified dates INTO the dates created.

    I use a program called MP3Tag which allows you to do that very easily with MP3s, however is there a program that can do something similar with Photos/videos?

    If it doesn't have an option to set the created date from the mod date then you probably need to do it in batch using some command line tool. But try the large freeware sites including SourceForge - Download, Develop and Publish Free Open Source Software.

    There must be some out there. In this case I can't search any better than you can. Also try Gizmos freeware forums and lists.

    Does it still happen if you use "Move", instead of "Copy"?
