Is the date taken shown in the File Properties by Windows?

See:
viewtopic.php?f=12&t=1998

BRU might support it via Windows File Properties.

The correct date is that one 1/03/2019

None of those Auto Date (8) things worked, they were all current 2020 dates

Any ideas?

So the 2 columns that seem corrects are:

System.ItemDate
System.Photo.DateTaken

The correct date is 01.03.2019 - 7:07pm

You can use those to rename the HEIC files:

Using Autodate (8) doesn't work, it grabs the wrong dates still

Can't there just be a function that uses the System.Photo.DateTaken date?

This has been added to BRU version 3.4.0.0
There is a new date called "Item Date" which is the creation date for HEIC, MOV, video and all media in general, also JPG.
"Item Date" is both a column in the file list, that can be used for sorting, and a new entry in AutoDate (8).
