Description

File Multi Tool 5 is the ultimate file tweaking tool.

File Multi Tool 5 combines the features of Photo Date Changer and File Date Changer 5 and adds a few tricks of its own.

CHANGE JPEG, CR2, NEF, ARF, CRW & CIFF EXIF TIMESTAMPS AT WILL

Just like Photo Date Changer, File Multi Tool 5 allows you to manipulate JPEG, CR2, NEF, ARF, CRW & CIFF EXIF timestamps at will by setting them to specific times or batch adjusting them by adding and removing time (useful for correcting the timestamps of images taken with a digital camera with a incorrectly set clock and to compensate for timezone changes).

CORRECT FINDER SORTING FOR JPEG EXIF AND RAW PHOTOS

File Multi-Tool 5 also allows to synchronize the file creation and modification dates with the shooting dates of JPEG EXIF as well as a wide variety of RAW formats, so that files sort properly in the Finder and other systems.

TOTAL CONTROL OVER FILE AND FOLDER CREATION AND MODIFICATION DATES

Just like File Date Changer 5, File Multi Tool 5 gives you total control over file creation and modification dates, setting them to specific times and dates, adding or removing time or simply removing them altogether.

MORE FILE MAGIC

On top of these features, File Multi Tool 5 gives you control over:

• whether or not file extensions appear in the Finder
• batch locking or unlocking of files
• setting or removing legacy creator & type codes
• removing invisible files
• seeing invisible files in the Finder
• batch setting of Finder labels
• forcing the Finder to update its information about files and folders

File Multi Tool 5 features an elegant and intuitive interface with many advanced features. Simply drag & drop the files you want to change into the file list, select an action from the popup menu and modify the settings to your liking, then click on "Perform Changes".

OTHER NOTEWORTHY FEATURES

• batch operation
• drag & drop into the file list or onto the application icon
• select files in the Finder and activate File Multi Tool 5 via the Finder context menu or via a hot key
• automatically deals with file date consistency rules
• separate processing for files and folders, batch processing of sub-folders

MAC OS X LIMITATIONS ON FILE DATES

Please note that Mac OS X imposes a number of "common sense" rules when it comes to file dates and will not allow you to set dates to "invalid" values.

In particular, you cannot set the dates to future values (i.e. later than now) and files cannot be modified before they are created. File Multi Tool 5 can automatically take care of these complications for you via the "automatically correct inconsistent dates" feature.

Also note that while File Multi Tool will let you set dates before 1972, the Mac OS X Finder does not "like" such dates and as soon as you point the Finder to such a file, it will "correct" this date to the 1st of January 1972.

File Multi-Tool is available exclusively on the Mac App Store.

Fixes 1984 grayed folders fast

I had a drive die but I had a backup so I figured I’d be fine. Well, halfway through the recovery process, it failed and left the source folder gray with the creation date of 1984. Strange but not unheard of issue. After fighting with several options via terminal, folder duplication, Disk Utility and Info/Permissions, I turned to the AppStore.

I didn’t bother hesitating to purchase this app - I had already tried most everything else. As it turns out, I am very glad that I did. It was only ~50GB of my kids growing up, after all…

In about 10 seconds, the data was accessible again. I only really needed it this one time but if it happens again, I’ll know just what to do.

Works fine for re-dating OS X file stamps but...

It works fine for re-dating OS X file timestamps but doesn't work with changing the dates in the EXIF and header metadata. I needed to re-date a number of photographs that had wrong digitizing and creation times. It said it was successful but when viewed in Preview inspector, they still showed the wrong dates.

I can use it for "touching" OS X dates which I occasionally need to do but for photograph metadata I still have to use UltraEdit in binary mode to fix wrong EXIF and header dates.

Works very well

Had an issue where my canon had the date set a year and a day behind and threw off my iPhoto library big time. This fixed the issue in two ways. Changed the EXIF data and was able to use the EXIF date as my created date. Worth the money over the time of any manual process.
