Hi,

I have some files that I am using in a portfolio and I would like them to all appear as created on the same day in Windows 7.

As far as I can see, copied files have a created date of the day that the copying date, but a modified date that is set to the original creation date - i.e. in the past.  

How can get all the date properties to today's date?

Thanks,

Dave

Hi Guys,

Thanks for the suggestion, but some of the files can't be modified any longer as I don't have appropriate software.  I need to be able to make the change in Windows.

Cheers,

Dave
