What is File Time and
what does FileHourFix do?
In Windows, every file has an associated
last modified time and last accessed time. Time
year, month, day and the actual hour, minute and second.
Other devices which create or store digital photos, documents
and other files, associate a timestamp (or more) with a file, too.
Sometimes, because the computer had its clock set inaccurately
for other reasons (e.g. different time zones, operating
systems, time notation conventions), you may find yourself in
where you have to modify only the hour in which a collection of files
were created, last
modified (edited) or last accessed (read).
Depending on the Windows edition, changing the date or time even for a
a file could be tricky and require certain technical skills. Moreover,
even for those skilled in the art, changing the time for a given
collection of files would be tedious and time consuming.
This is why we created FileHourFix
,-- to help you
perform this complicated task, with a single click!
To make it as fast and intuitive as possible, you set the number of
hours to adjust when you install FileHourFix
Then you simply right-click a file (or more) and select File Hour Fix!

instructions. Once you download this setup file (keep it on your
desktop or in

button to complete installation. Then, from now on, all you have to do
to change a file's timestamp, is right-click that file and
select File Hour Fix!

entry in your Start Menu, which allows you to uninstall it, should you
ever want to do this.
The date and time a file was created, accessed, or changed is an
integral (sometimes critical) part of the file, whether this
information is needed for legal purposes, entertainment or just proper
system operation. Modern operating systems keep records of at
least these three values for each file and directory. They are also
known as time stamps (or timestamps).
Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 record and track at least the
following three timestamps:
- Date Created: When a file or directory is newly created,
this value is set and never changes (unless manipulated by a tool
like FileHourFix). A new copy of a file
saved to a different location, is regarded as a new file and thus has
its own creation time stamp.
- Date Modified: Also known as the Last Written
date. When you (or a computer program) changes the contents of a file a
directory, this time value changes. Note that renaming a file is not
considered content change.
- Date Accessed: Shows the last time the file was
accessed or read.
By nature, time stamps are neither foolproof nor
temper-proof. There are many reasons why the dates and times recorded
for a given file may be inaccurate. For example, the
computer’s system clock may have been incorrectly set or a file
originating in one computing device (digital camera, smartphone,
iPhone, iPad or other mobile device).
This is where we step in and offer our family of pinpoint solutions for
particular scenarios. Our FileHourFix
example, is perfect for situations in which your smartphone
or digital camera are set to different time systems.
