In order to facilitate document management, I need to modify the advanced file attributes like the creation date, author name etc, but the built-in Windows function does not support these operations, then, what should I do to change the advanced attributes of the files? Power users can do some operation via the command ATTRIB available in the command line windows. But people who are not geeks, can do it easily with a very light-weight tool called File Property Edit.
File Property Edit is proposed in a freeware version and a shareware version (PRO). Installation is easy and can be launched directly for management purposes. Using the Add Files or Add Folder you can add files and folders to the list or else, simply drag and drop to add files to the list. A Filter box is provided in order to clarify the list of files to have their attribute changed, thus typing the keyword in this edit box, the files that do not match this filter will be filtered out. Handy if the folder includes hundreds of files.
With File Property Edit you can easily change all files & folders’ Read-Only file/folder attribute with just one click. There are several options like include subfolders, Apply to files, Apply to folders for customizing operation types. Changing attributes and date/time stamps on file and folders in Windows is somewhat troublesome – but with File Property Edit it is just one click away.
You can change many properties easily. Say, to change File Time first check the Set File Time checkbox, then all the file time related controls are enabled. With just several clicks, you can easily change the files’ attributes, including create time, modify time, last access time, Read only, Hidden, System… and modify their properties, handy for batch files properties editing. If something goes wrong on the road then the 1-click Undo feature allows you to rollback all the changes you just made.
