Hello,

I want a batch file that I can copy into a directory and then run it that will read the date and time the files were created and write them into a text file. Is this possible?

Thanks in advance

Skye

I understand the problem.

Here is a script.

# Script CreationTime.txt
var string directory
var string list, file, time
if ($directory=="")
    exit 1 "Error 1: Directory not specified."
endif
cd $directory
lf -n "*" > $list
while ($list <> "")
do
    lex "1" $list > $file
    fdinfo -c $file > $time
    stex "^/^l]" $file > null
    echo $time "\t" $file >> "./timelist.txt"
done



Script is in biterscripting. Save the script in file C:/Scripts/CreationTime.txt, run with this command in biterscripting.

script "C:/Scripts/CreationTime.txt" directory("C:/directory")


It will list all files in directory C:/directory and their creation times (yyyymmddhhMMss format) into file timelist.txt.

Dear Sir,

You can easily have these information by right clicking on the file and getting to its properties.

Thanks in advance.

I know and if I had say 20 to 30 files I could do that and be just fine, however I have 3400 pictures from trail cameras that I want to try to find a pattern as to when the pictures where taken. To see if the animals in the pictures have a routine to there day. So looking at each file individually and then typing that in to a text file would take way to long. Also each week I have another 300 or so picture to add to the list.

Thanks for your help
