Attribute Changer 8.0b https://www.petges.lu/home/news-20150813-Attribute-Changer-8.0b A maintenance release of Attribute Changer 8.0 is available for immediate download. It includes the following modifications:

· Internal changes in shell extension ( now listed correctly in ShellExView from NirSoft )
· Optimized locking mechanism to prevent unnecessary failed actions
· Fixed column 'Name - N' to only display foldername, not complete path
· Fixed option 'Picture date and time from JPEG' to keep existing date and time if no EXIF data is detected.
· Fixed wrong tab selection in 'Detailed Reporting' window

An update of Attribute Changer's shell extension is installed. If you recently used the tool, the setup program may ask you for a reboot.

Attribute Changer 8.0 is now available in Czech, English, German, Hungarian, Italian, Portuguese (Brazilian), Romanian, Spanish, Swedish and Turkish.

Note: Why does Attribute Changer fail to update a file or folder if there is no obvious reason ?

If you selected the option to change date, time or the compression state of a folder or file, then Attribute Changer needs to acquire a Read/Write handle to this object. Updates to attributes, photo EXIF data and a case change do not require this kind of access handle.

If you mix the modifications, lets say attributes and date, then Attribute Changer will fail the object if it can’t acquire a handle. It will not apply the attributes and fail on the date modification.

Attribute Changer protects files and folders against partial updates. This is by design.

Attribute Changer - 15 Years https://www.petges.lu/home/news-20141229-Attribute-Changer---15-Years Back in 1999, I needed a tool to change attributes on files and folders but failed to find something on the Internet that worked the way I expected. So I decided to write my own application and it’s a real success story.

I remember the days when I first put it on the Internet and had about 20 downloads a week. Once users spreaded the word about the tool, more and more feature requests were implemented.

Since 2010, over 450.000 copies of Attribute Changer were downloaded from this website and an impressive 800.000 visitors generated over 2.000.000 pageviews.

Many thanks for the ongoing success of Attribute Changer and looking forward to the next major release in 2015.
