16 April 2018

Edit file type, creator, mod date, and more.

Overview

File Properties Editor allows you to modify simply, rapidly, and efficiently the main properties of your files, folders, and applications. You want to modify or reset their creation or modification date and time? You want to lock them to prevent their modification? Or you want to hide them so that nobody can see them? Then File Properties Editor is what you need!

File Properties Editor allows you to edit several properties of any kind of files.

  • You can edit the properties of any kind of file (files, folders, applications, ...).
  • You can edit their name, their type, their creator, their creation date and time, their modification date and time, their access date and time.
  • You can set their type and creator like the ones of any other file.
  • You can set their creation, modification and access dates and times to the current time or any other time.
  • You can check their logical and physical size, for both the data and resource forks.
  • You can delete their data or resource fork.
  • You can locked them (to prevent them from being modified) and unlock them.
  • You can make them readable or not and writable or not.
  • You can make them visible or invisible (to hide them in the Finder so that nobody can see them).
  • You can make their extension visible or not.
  • It doesn't need any installation which makes it very easy to use.
  • It is available in Dutch, English, French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Spanish and many other languages.

What's new in File Properties Editor

Version 7.1:
  • A full recompilation has been made to be compatible with OS X 10.11 El Capitan and macOS 10.12 Sierra, and as Universal Binary to keep being compatible with both old (PowerPC) Macs and recent (Intel) Macs.
  • The "How to intall it?" paragraph of the documentation has been updated to explain how to install and launch the application, in particular under Mac OS 10.13 High Sierra
  • Under Mac OS 10.13 High Sierra, if you're launching the Application for the first time, Mac OS' GateKeeper (which you can configure in the "System Preferences") will refuse to launch it because you've not downloaded it from the Mac App Store (but from our website). In this case, instead of double-clicking on it, all you have to do is to right-click on the Application's icon, and then select the "Open" menu. A message will appear in which you'll be able to confirm that you want to launch the Application (even if it was not downloaded from the Mac App Store from an Identified Developer).

A rip off. Charging this much for slapping a badly written front end on somebody else's work is a disgrace. AlphaOmega software are a disgrace.

THESE THIEVES ARE BACK...AGAIN! WON'T THEY EVER GO AWAY? Every once in a while, these guys inflict themselves on the Mac community and then disappear, presumably after a few suckers have plunked down too many of their hard-earned dollars for too little quality and functionality. ANYTHING an AlphaOmega app does can be had elsewhere...better and cheaper!!!

THOROUGHLY BOGUS Before you pay the thieves at AlphaOmega a penny, learn free ways to do the same thing.

This thing is kind of Buggy. The 'set to now' box works in a different time zone or is not set to recognize AM vs PM. At any rate anything after noon will show as the next day. Suggest manually entering date and time which seems to work fine. I used 24 hr clock times and they show up as regular AM PM in finder. As for the previous review I found that most File Information is locked by default and must be unlocked using your system password before you can change the creation date. The modification date seems to work fine without unlocking (previous bug not withstanding). I would not pay for this application in it's current form but for the occasional date change (usually) for sorting reasons in Finder) I can live with the nag.

Useless. Won't change file permissions. As soon as you apply changes, they go back to "????". And yes, I have read/write privileges for the file.
