    I forgot how to change the creation date of a file. I thouhgt I can use
    attrib, but don;t see a switch that'll enable a date change.

    How can I change the creation date of a file?

    Thanks,

    Mike

    you need to get a program like 'touch' but for windows.

    ntouch and dtouch from http://www.flos-freeware.ch/misc.html will do
