File Date Corrector – Correct ‘Date Created’ and ‘Date Modified’ and Restore Original Creation Date


You set up your new computer and all imported files on your new hard disk have now a wrong “Date Created”? Or you copied all your vacation photos from your digital camera or your smartphone to your computer and you have discovered that the “Date Created” of all pictures is the date of copying? For many applications it is important that the system displays the original creation and modification dates of the files. In particular what legal documents concerns, the original “Date Created” is of importance.  Also when sorting your pictures, the original “Date Taken” is needed in order to document your reportage in the correct time sequence.


What Happened?

When copying files,  Microsoft Windows™ takes the date of copying as the new file date “Created” and not the original creation date or date taken of files. Therefore, the “Date Created” can be more recent than the “Date Modified”.


The Solution

File Date Corrector for Windows is able to correct simply and fast the system-provided file dates “Created” and “Modified”, taking into account the correct time zone. For this purpose, File Date Corrector is extracting the necessary information from metadata and file information of various files such as pictures, video, audio, documents (Microsoft Office Documents as well as Open Document Formats like Open Office, Libre Office etc.) and PDFs in order to correct the file date “Created” and  restore the original creation date / date taken.

File Date Corrector enables to correct file dates “Created” and “Modified” of complete file directories at once. Before the definitive execution of corrections, a preview with the intended date corrections is displayed.
