Hello,

 

I'm trying to batch change the time and date of a bunch of folder (and files within each folder) residing on a portable USB harddrive.

I have tried several software to do this, they all worked ok for the files, but even though they all claim to be able to change the time/date of folders, they all fail. The folders are not being used by any other programs and they are not write protected.

What could I be doing wrong?

What happens if you try changing the folders in Safe Mode?
