I'm using the command "touch" in the terminal to set the creation date of some old home movies I'm dumping on HD. I can move the creation date back with the following command: MacPro:~ scott$ touch -t 200308311500 /Users/scott/Desktop/2-month-bath.mov The problem now, I cannot move the date back up (when I fat finger)... EVEN if I move the modified date way in the future, the creation date won't move back up with it... Give the command a try on a garbage file and see what I mean. Any suggestions? I know there are other scripts and developer commands to do this, but I would really like to use this simple command if possible.
