This is the portable edition of FileTime, a simple-to-use tool that changes the date and time attributes of all files from a specified folder. It includes intuitive options that can be figured out by all types of users, regardless of their previous experience in such apps.
Since there is no installation involved, you can drop the app to any part of the hard disk and just click the executable to run. Another possibility is to save FileTime to a USB flash disk or similar storage unit, in order to run it on any PC with minimum effort and no previous installers. Plus, the app does not modify Windows registry settings or create additional files on the disk, leaving it clean after removal.
Intuitive GUI and settings
The interface is represented by a simple window that shows all options available in the tool. It is possible to modify the creation, last modification and last access date and time. Since the changes are applicable to all files from a folder, you have to point out the directory via the tree view.
In addition, you can filter the files, include the subfolders, as well as apply the date and time modifications to the folders as well. All these changes can be committed with the click of a button. However, there is no option implemented for resetting settings to default.
Evaluation and conclusion
The program does not put a strain on PC performance, since it runs on low CPU and RAM. There were no issues in our tests, since it did not hang, crash or pop up error dialogs. All in all, FileTime delivers a simple solution when it comes to modifying the time and date attributes for files and folders in batch mode, and it can be used by anyone.
