This program can set all files or a number of selected files in a directory to the same date and time. At the same time it can change the file names to upper or lower case.
This example shows a directory with a few files of the same program. The date is set to the "official" release date and the time to the version of the program.
The second function of this program is to change the case of filenames. On many severs the file system is case sensitive. Therefore it is recommended to use a standard filename system, like all filenames in lowercase.
The program can convert all files in a directory, or only selected files.
The program uses only on form where everything can be found.
