Hello and welcome to JA, my name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.

Are you wantng to change a file's modified date which works from inside File Explorer context menu. Are you aware of external tools like "Bulk File Changer" or "Petges" ?

If all you want to do is change the attribute, go with Petgres (link below), it changes many attributes not normally accessible.

Is that what you were looking for? If not......can you explain in more detail what you are trying to do.

Hi,This isn't what I need. I have a video file created on a mobile device. The created date, encoded date and tagged gate on the file is incorrect and I wish to edit them only. It is possible to change these dates via a remux using mp4box or ffmpeg BUT this also changes other meta data/exif data like Handler ID or vendor due to the remuxing. Using the tool you mentioned only changes accessed/edited/modified dates viewable by the file system AND NOT the exif/meta data. Do you know how to edit the created/encoded/tagged dates on the EXIF/Metadata ?

Nope.

I will opt out, so a different expert can take a whack at this. Not sure if such a thing exists, but I've been wrong before.

Good Luck.
