Change the Created Date Meta-Data?

Is it possible to edit/modify the Created Date Meta-Data? I imported some items and want to change this date.


No, this is uneditable. You would have to find some utility to edit the created date in the Finder before importing.

All the best,

You “could” move or copy the file at the OS then reimport it. Or, if you want to dive into KB’s world a tad, you could use the basic stdio and stdfile C libraries to write a simple command line tool to do the manipulation for you. There are also some possibilities using a few ACL tricks, but really, your just asking for trouble. Not that it ever stopped me from doing it, but just be careful.

Or you could use A Better Finder Attributes:

if you don’t like the command line.

Thank you for your replies.
