how to modify "created date" with date in the filename

Postby jorgeelizondom » Mon Sep 15, 2014 10:45 pm

I batched re-encoded a few thousand video files from avi to mp4 using sony playmemories home.
It turns out that the re-encoder replaced the created date with the date the re-encoded file was created, which is a bad thing for me.

Fortunately the date created is preserved because the file name has this created date in the format yyyy-mm-dd.

Is there a way that Bulk Rename can take this file name and us it to change the "created date"?

Please help

Sorry, I do not think it's possible to go from file name to created date.... :(
