appreciate the quick response.
when i look into the properties of both a JPG and an HEIC file (under "Details" and "Date Taken"), they both seem to miss the "seconds" (e.g. 9/20/2019 4:10 PM) but obviously the JPG file has it and it even shows up in the "Item Date" column.
does this make sense?
thanks

Hi, Windows removes all seconds for some reason...
BRU will not show seconds (or set them to 0) for time info it gets directly from Windows like Item Date, but it will show seconds for dates it gets directly via EXIF (jpg) or from the file system (created / modified / accessed date).

so how do you explain this - i take the HEIC file in windows that supposedly doesn't have the seconds info, convert it to JPEG and now I do have the Date Taken info with seconds.
the seconds info is somewhere in the HEIC file obviously as it pops up when the HEIC file is converted to JPEG.

Yes, but if you check, Windows does not show seconds for date taken either when in JPG format.
BRU does because it gets date taken directly from the JPG EXIF and not from Windows for JPG files.
I think it would be good for BRU not to rely on Windows!

Yes. Windows doesnt show seconds for either file type but my point is this info us contained somewhere in the HEIC file and so there’s got to be a way to extract it.

Yes, it's in there. BRU relies on Windows to provide that info and Windows does not provide the seconds, unfortunately.
