Hi there, I have a set of about 8000 files that I need to "touch" to update the timestamp to todays date. I know XP used to have a touch command line option, but how do I do this on Windows 2008 server 64bit?

Dont think thats relevant, the touch command there is listed for Unix machines, not windows. Powershell doesnt have a touch function...
