Rename Files with "Origin" Dates, not "File" Dates

Postby ahenobarb » Mon Dec 05, 2016 6:07 pm

I am recovering files off a dead hard drive and I need to rename my files with information located in the file "properties" data obtain by r-clicking each file.

Using this wonderful tool, however, I am only able to name the new files with the date/time the file was created/modified/accessed on the NEW hard drive, i.e. if you r-click the file > Properties > Details I am able to rename the files with the information at the bottom in the "File" subsection, but what I need is to be able to rename the files with the information in the "Origin" subsection.

I.e. the created/modified/accessed information gives me a date of Dec 3, 2016 instead of March 24, 2016, which is the file's ORIGIN date.

Here's a screenshot: Image


Is there a way to rename the file using this information? Reading through the documentation, I don't see that this program is able to do that.

Hi, it's not possible with BRU to use the Word Document properties instead of the file timestamps to rename files.
