BulkFileChanger v1.65 32bit

BulkFileChanger is a small utility that allows you to create files list from multiple folders, and then make some action on them - Modify their created/modified/accessed time, change their file attribute (Read Only, Hidden, System), run an executable with these files as parameter, and copy/cut paste into Explorer.

BulkFileChanger is a replacement for the old FileDate Changer utility.

System Requirements & Limitations

This utility works on any version of Windows, starting from Windows 2000 and up to Windows 10. Both 32-bit and 64-bit systems are supported.
If you set a date prior to 01/01/1980, Windows Explorer will not display this date, due to a limitation originally created for old FAT systems. You can still watch an old file date using other file managers like 7-zip, using BulkFileChanger utility, or by right-clicking on the file and choosing 'Properties'.

Versions History

Version 1.65:

BulkFileChanger now allows you to change and copy the date/time values stored inside media files ( .mp4 , .mov).
You can change/copy 3 date/time values: Item Date, Date Encoded, Date Acquired.
This feature works on Windows 7 and later.
Be aware that the effect of changing these date/time values might be different on different versions of Windows operating system.

Using BulkFileChanger
BulkFileChanger doesn't require any installation process or additional dll files. In order to start using it, simply run the executable file - BulkFileChanger.exe

After running BulkFileChanger, you can add files into the list by using one of the following methods:

Copy and Paste: Simply copy files from Explorer window (Ctrl+C) and then paste them into BulkFileChanger (Ctrl+V). You can also copy files from other utilities of NirSoft, like SearchMyFiles and HashMyFiles.
Drag From Explorer: You can add files by dragging them from Explorer window into the main window of BulkFileChanger.
'Add Files' option (F2):Add files from 'open file' dialog-box.
'Add By Wildcard' option (F3):Add multiple files by specifying wildcard, path, and subfolder depth to scan. (For Example: c:\temp\*.txt)

You can also remove files from the list by using 'Remove Selected Files' option (Del key) or clear the entire files list by using 'Clear Files List' (Ctrl+L)

After you added the desired files, you can select some of them or all of them (Ctrl+A) and then use one of the following options:

Change Time / Attributes (F6): Allows you to modify the modified/created/accessed time of the selected files. You set them to specific time/date values or you can add/subtract days/hours/minutes/seconds from the existing file time. You can also modify the attributes of the files, like Read-Only, Hidden, and so on.
Execute Command On Selected Files (F7): Allows you to run any executable with the selected files as command-line parameter. For example: if you specify 'c:\temp\MyProgram.exe "%1"' in the execute command string, BulkFileChanger will run MyProgram.exe for every file in the list, and the "%1" will be replaced with the full path filename.
Explorer Copy/Cut: You can use the copy or cut option to copy/move the selected files into another folder window of Explorer.
Export Selected Items: You can export the files list into html/text/html/csv file.

Command-Line Options
/cfg <Filename> Start BulkFileChanger with the specified configuration file. For example:
BulkFileChanger.exe /cfg "c:\config\bfc.cfg"
/ChangeTimeAttr <Folder> <Wildcard> <Subfolders Depth> <File/Folder Mode> This command-line option allows you to scan a folder and its subfolders, and change the date/time/attributes of all files without displaying any user interface. The change is made according to the last settings stored in the .cfg file. You can choose to load another .cfg file (Instead of default) by using the /cfg command-line option.

<Folder> - Specifies the base folder to scan.
<Wildcard> - Specifies the wildcard to determine which files to change. For example, if you want to only modify the date/time of .exe file, specify "*.exe". If you want to change all files - simply specify "*".
<Subfolders Depth> - Specifies the depth of subfolders to scan. If you specify 0, BulkFileChanger will not scan the subfolders.
<File/Folder Mode> - Specifies whether to change the date/time/attributes of files, folders or both:
0 = Both Files and folders
1 = Files only
2 = Folders only

Here's a few examples:
BulkFileChanger.exe /ChangeTimeAttr "C:\Temp\MyFiles" "*" 5 0
BulkFileChanger.exe /ChangeTimeAttr "C:\Temp\MyFiles" "a*.csv" 0 1
BulkFileChanger.exe /cfg "c:\temp\bfc12.cfg" /ChangeTimeAttr "C:\Temp" "*" 10 0
BulkFileChanger.exe /LogFile "c:\temp\log1.txt" /ChangeTimeAttr "C:\MyFiles" "*" 2 0

Warning !!
This command-line option is very powerful, so you should use it carefully. It's recommended to test it with a single small folder to check that it works as expcted before running it on a full drive...
/LogFile <Filename> Specifies a log file to write all actions and errors while running the /ChangeTimeAttr command.
/LogFileAppend <Filename> Similar to /LogFile, but if the file already exists, the new log lines are added to the existing file.

Translating BulkFileChanger to other languages
In order to translate BulkFileChanger to other language, follow the instructions below:

Run BulkFileChanger with /savelangfile parameter:
BulkFileChanger.exe /savelangfile
A file named BulkFileChanger_lng.ini will be created in the folder of BulkFileChanger utility.
Open the created language file in Notepad or in any other text editor.
Translate all string entries to the desired language. Optionally, you can also add your name and/or a link to your Web site. (TranslatorName and TranslatorURL values) If you add this information, it'll be used in the 'About' window.
After you finish the translation, Run BulkFileChanger, and all translated strings will be loaded from the language file.
If you want to run BulkFileChanger without the translation, simply rename the language file, or move it to another folder.
