    I use the iDisk to store rendered videos for clients to have a look at. Unfortunately I can't seem to find a way to change the date format from the backwards US system to the international DDMMYY format.

    It's really confusing for clients who keep downloading the wrong files! Not to mention me as I keep having remember to look in the middle, then to the left, then to the right on dates that don't exceed the number 12!

    Any ideas? :mad:

    Not sure if you can change that date but would it be feasible to use some standard in your file names? For instance CCYYMMDD (which I think is the ISO or close to the ISO standard).

    I'm pretty sure that is the ISO standard, although ironically noone really uses it.

    It is the ISO standard. I use it and it confuses the hell out of people :p
