Folder name based on earliest and latest file dates

Postby johnmeyer » Thu Jul 02, 2020 10:27 pm

I have several hundred thousand photos organized into folders. Each folder is the location where the photos were taken. I want to append two dates to each folder: the date of the earliest photo in that folder and the date of the latest photo in the folder. This will let me sort all the folders according to the chronology of when the photos in the folder were taken.

Would the earliest/latest dates coincide with Date Created/Date Modified ?

If not, you might be able to set those dates with FolderTimeUpdate.

Then, 8:Auto Date, should be able to accomplish what you're wanting.
(Would take two separate runs, to get both dates.)


Experiment with both utilities (on a backed up, subset of your files) & see what you can come up with.
