Batch operation to make file creation date equal to file modification date
Posted on 2013-11-22
Running Windows 7 Professional, I recently installed an Outlook Add-in called NEO Find. When that program created a catalog for indexing, it appears to have set the file modified date of thousands of my archived .eml files to the present date. The software vendors are skeptical that their application caused this, because NEO Find indexes Outlook pst files, not Outlook Express .eml files. However, the file modified date of every .eml file was changed to the date and time when NEO Find was installed. In any case, I've used an application called Total Commander to restore the file modified dates to all those .eml files, based on a backup. However, Total Commander doesn't change the file creation date. I'm looking for a way to perform a batch operation which sets the file creation date equal to the file modified date on all .eml files.
