After you have prepared your documents for a meeting or a project, you should make sure that they are having the same date and time stamps. If you present files of a project with dates varying from many days and weeks, then the whole project looks untidy and not very well arranged. On the other hand if the files have the same date and time, then they look much more orderly. But the question is how do we change the timestamps of a file after it has been created. The answer is a little file utility called Restamper.
Restamper is a Windows application that can be used to quickly change the timestamps of any file. It can change all the three types of the timestamps – file creation time, last modified time and the last accessed time.
In the user interface of Restamper, you can set the creation, last accessed, last modified date and time. We can use the local time or the UTC time. We can choose to change any of these timestamps or we can choose to change all of these values. We can set these all values to the current time or manually adjust them.
After setting the timestamps in the user interface of Restamper, we have to pick a file or folder for changing the timestamps. If we choose a file, then its timestamps are changes instantly based on the values displayed in the Restamper window. It does not display any confirmation or warning.
If we choose a folder to be processed, then it will go through all the files inside the folder. If we have selected the option for going through the sub-folders, then it will process the sub-directories as well. We can also exclude the directories from being restamped. If the target files have read-only attributes set, then Restamper can remove these attributes, add new timestamps and then re-add the read-only attributes.
