Does anyone know of a good tool which can do batch modifications to metadata contained in a group of files? Operations such as modification, removal, and even metadata searching within files in a folder or group of folders?

exif details in a file, tags added to mp3s, etc. Basically, most of what you see when you look at the details tab in a file's property window.

+ 1 from me.

I have been looking for exactly that kind of a tool for a while now. No joy so far.

@Josh
My default answer is: Total Commander with nice set of plugins Wink

Here is what can be done:

Searching



Viewing



Editing





Two cons:
1. it needs some playing with WDXes,
2. only few plugins have attributes writing support.

Total Commander is nice but I would prefer a dedicated program. I've never been into explorer replacements as most of them do not fully replace the file management capabilities in Windows. Looking for more of a dedicated metadata tool.

Thanks for the suggestion thou smiley
