SETDATE sets the date/time of files

Highlight some files in File Manager then right click and choose SendTo|SetDate. A dialog box then lets you set the dates and times of the files.


I'm sorry this is so complicated. I'll try to get around to making an automatic installer soon.

Copy the exe into any directory (e.g. C:\Utils) then create a link to it in the "C:\Documents and Settings\[your name]\SendTo" directory where [your name] is the name of you as a "user". On my PC, it's "peter.PRB.000" so my link is in:

C:\Documents and Settings\peter.PRB.000\SendTo\SetDate.lnk

The directory may be Hidden. To see it, in XP File Manager (other OS may be different):

To make the shortcut, select the File|New|Shortcut menu command and follow the instructions of the wizard.

Now highlight any file(s) in File Manager then right-click over it. Under "Send To" you'll see "SetDate". Click on it. The dialog box will let you set the date and time of the files.

The number of file names you can you pick up is limited to a total text size of around 2000 characters.
