Hi – I have been trying to edit the creation date for a file in my movie library.
I want to set the CREATION date to e.g. 4th of January 2020 10AM for a file.
For this I use the command "touch -t 202001041000 /Users/[myaccountname]/Movies/filename.MP4".
The command successfully updates the MODIFIED date but doesn't update the CREATED. Which is weird!
But, here comes the really weird part:
If I use another DATE, e.g. 4th of January 2000 10AM, then the same command ("touch -t 200001041000 /Users/[myaccountname]/Movies/filename.MP4".), then the command will update BOTH attributes successfully.
If I try 4th January 2001 10AM – the command will fail.
If I try 4th January 1999 10AM – the command will succeed!
I used this command succesfully back in 2017 for both modified and created date.
What has happened?
