SOLVED: Quick PowerShell Question
« on: October 03, 2018, 01:16 AM »
I'd like to change the date of all files in a folder, recursively.

A PowerShell script I've found on the Internet to do this is:


$files =  Get-ChildItem -force -recurse | Where-Object {! $_.PSIsContainer}
foreach($object in $files)
{
     $object.CreationTime=("10 November 2016 12:00:00")
}


My question is:  Where would one place the folder to be acted upon?

The script above operates on the 'current' folder.  But I'd like to act upon a different folder from 'current.'

Example: C:\Files\*.*

If anyone knows of another 'command line' (i.e., batch file) way of doing the job, please share.

Thanks!

Nicholas Kormanik
