CHANGELOG

What's New in version 1.71:

  • Fixed bug: The extension column displayed incorrect value when there was a folder with '.' character and filename without extension.

What's New in version 1.70:

  • Added support for document files (Word, Excel) date/time values - 'Content Created Time' and 'Last Saved Time'. This feature works on Windows 7 and later.
  • If you have 64-bit system, this feature may work improperly with the 32-bit version of BulkFileChanger, so you should use the 64-bit version of BulkFileChanger.

What's New in version 1.65:

  • BulkFileChanger now allows you to change and copy the date/time values stored inside media files ( .mp4 , .mov).
  • You can change/copy 3 date/time values: Item Date, Date Encoded, Date Acquired.
  • This feature works on Windows 7 and later.
  • Be aware that the effect of changing these date/time values might be different on different versions of Windows operating system.

What's New in version 1.60:

  • BulkFileChanger now allows you to change the date/time values stored inside EXIF data of .jpg files.
  • You can change 3 EXIF date/time values: Generated Time, Stored Time, and Modified Time.
  • The most useful field to change is the 'Generated Time' (Also known as 'Date Taken'), because this field is displayed under the 'Date' column of Windows Explorer and also many applications use this value as official date/time of the picture.
  • This feature works only when the date/time values already exist inside the .jpg files (BulkFileChanger cannot add new fields into the EXIF data).

What's New in version 1.52:

  • Added 'Fill Current Time' button, which fills all date/time fields in the 'Change file time / attributes' window with the current date/time.

What's New in version 1.51:

  • Added 'Fill Date/Time From File' button to the 'Change file time / attributes' window. When you click it, you can choose a file and then the current date/time of this file will be copied to the date/time fields of the 'Change file time / attributes' window.

What's New in version 1.50:

  • Added /ChangeTimeAttr command-line option which automatically scans the specified folder and its subfolders and modifies the date/time/attributes according to the .cfg file, without displaying any user interface.
  • Added /LogFile and /LogFileAppend command-line options which write all date/time changes and errors into a log file (For using with /ChangeTimeAttr )
  • Added /cfg command-line option for loading another configuration file instead of the default one.
  • Updated the 'Attributes' column to display the following Attributes: 'I' for 'Not Content Indexed', 'E' for encrypted file, 'X' for 'No Scrub File', and 'V' for 'Integrity Attribute'.

What's New in version 1.40:

  • 'Change Time / Attributes' window: The date/times values are now stored in the .cfg file.
  • 'Change Time / Attributes' window: Added 'Save Settings' button, for saving the current settings without changing any file.
  • You can now drag a file from Windows Explorer into the 'Change Time / Attributes' window and the created/modified/accessed times of this file will be copied to the appropriate date/time settings.

What's new in version 1.35:

  • Added 'Run As Administrator' option (Ctrl+F11), which allows you to easily run BulkFileChanger as administrator on Windows Vista/7/8/2008.
  • BulkFileChanger now can read the EXIF data of CR2 raw files.

What's New in version 1.33:

  • Fixed bug from v1.32: BulkFileChanger stopped working on Windows 2000.

What's New in version 1.32:

  • Fixed BulkFileChanger to display and handle daylight saving time properly, like Explorer on Windows 7.

What's New in version 1.31:

  • BulkFileChanger now displays file dates prior to 01/01/1980. In previous versions, BulkFileChanger didn't display these dates in order to be compatible with Windows Explorer...

What's New in version 1.30:

  • BulkFileChanger now displays an error message if it fails to change the date/time/attributes of one or more files.
  • Added 'Modified-Created Time Difference' column, which displays the time difference (in hours:minutes:seconds.milliseconds format) between the created time and the modified time of the file. This time difference might be interesting in some circumstances. For example: If you download a new file from the Internet, the file is created at the moment you start to download it, and its modified time is set to the time that the last byte was written to the file. This means that the created/modified time difference represents the duration of downloading process.

What's New in version 1.25:

  • You can now specify environment variables (For example: 'appdata') in the folder path to scan ('Add By Wildcard' option).

What's New in version 1.24:

  • Fixed bug: If you added files, and then removed them from the list, BulkFileChanger failed to add them again.

What's New in version 1.23:

  • Fixed issue: BulkFileChanger failed to copy EXIF properties from .jpg image to the created/modified/accessed time of the file, On Windows 7 and Windows 8. The problem is actually in the GDI+ library of Windows which from unknown reason fails to read these EXIF properties. So BulkFileChanger now reads the EXIF data directly instead of using the GDI+ library of Windows.

What's New in version 1.22:

  • Fixed issue: The properties dialog-box and other windows opened in the wrong monitor, on multi-monitors system.
  • Added 'Auto Size Columns+Headers' option, which allows you to automatically resize the columns according to the row values and column headers.
  • Added 64-bit build.

What's New in version 1.21:

  • Fixed bug: BulkFileChanger failed to display the size and date/time information for a filename that begins with dot character.

What's New in version 1.20:

  • Added 3 new options into 'Copy Time From': EXIF - Generated Time, EXIF - Stored Time, and EXIF - Modified Time. You can use these options to copy the date/time stored inside EXIF data of digital camera picture into the created/modified time of the file.

What's New in version 1.15:

  • Added 'Date/time sequence mode' option. When it's turned on, BulkFileChanger will set a different date/time value for every file, and the 'Add' field will be used to add additional time interval for every file. For example, if you set the modified date/time to '07/07/2011 10:12:15' and the add value is set to 1 second, the modified time of the first file will be set the '07/07/2011 10:12:15', the second file will be set to '07/07/2011 10:12:16', the third file will be set to '07/07/2011 10:12:17', and so on... The order of the files is determined according to the column you click. So, if for example, you click the filename column and then use the 'Date/time sequence mode', the date/time values will be set according to the filename alphabetical order.

What's New in version 1.10:

  • Added the option to copy from one date/time value to another. (For example, you can copy the modified time into the created time or the created time into the modified time and accessed time)

What's New in version 1.05:

  • BulkFileChanger now also allows you to change the date/time of a folder. You can add a folder by dragging it from Explorer or by adding it with 'Add By Wildcard' feature and 'Add Folders' option turned on.
  • Added 'File Extension' column.
  • Added 'Mark Odd/Even Rows' option, under the View menu. When it's turned on, the odd and even rows are displayed in different color, to make it easier to read a single line.

What's New in version 1.02:

  • Added support for temporary file attribute.

What's New in version 1.01:

  • Fixed bug: When the find dialog-box was in focus, pressing the delete key removed the file from the main window.
