Q: Solved: Batch convert timestamp of lots of files by fixed number of minutes

I found programs that will let me specify exact date and time to batch convert timestamp of files, but my files come with many different dates and times and I only need to adjust them by a few minutes.

Does a program like this exist at all?

Preferred Solution: Solved: Batch convert timestamp of lots of files by fixed number of minutes

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi Guys,

I am running a batch file through the night to copy things between servers (using the xcopy command).

The files being copied are quite large (171MB) and I am wanting to know what time they finish copying over.

I have a Pause command at the end of the script which allows me to see that it has finished successfully when I arrive at work in the morning. Is there a way for it to insert a timestamp just before the pause to show the finishing time?
Regards
Andy

Hi, does anyone know of a way to line up a batch of video files to convert to mp4 format to view them on ipod? I currently use Videora to convert avi files to this format but I have to spend a long time selecting every single file individually to convert. With all the steps in that program it can get a bit tedious.

I wondered if there is a program which alows you to highlight a whole batch of files and either convert the lot or make a converted copy of them, so I can then transfer the lot into itunes. Any advice?

How do I create a batch file to convert all of my iPod Photo Cache all at once to jpeg. I have SmartIV ImageZipper Image Converter 1.0.2. I have read how to use other software to do this but I can't figure out the command with this software. I have no experience running batch files so please be specific. I made a folder on my C: drive named Thumbs that have all of the folders/files in it. My software is in the Programs (x86) folder. This PC/Windows(C/Programs(x86)/SmartIV/ImageZipper/imagezipperPic FileConverter.exe.These are the instructions I saw:

This link is no longer valid & I already had conversion software that works but you have to do it a folder at a time.

Now follow these steps:
1. Create a new foder called Thumbs as a subdirectory of your hard drive. I assume this your C: drive. (example C:\Thumbs)
2. Copy all the .ithmb files into this folder.
3. Download the iThmbConv program file directly into this folder.
4. Now, on your pc desktop, go to Start, Run and enter cmd in the box. Hit okay.
5. When the black screen command prompt comes on, type cd.. at the end of the prompt line. Press Enter.
6. The next line should only show C:> If not, enter cd.. again to just show C:>
7. Now type *cd Thumbs* When you press enter, the next line should be C:Thumbs>

Hi, now that I've got my working batch file doing everything I want it to do, could anyone tell me how to schedule it to run every 5 minutes or so? Windows Task Scheduler only seems to allow a maximum of once every day and I don't really fancy adding hundreds of jobs at 5 minute intervals to it.

Is there a free program to do this? A way to make another batch file to do it for me (although I -really- would prefer not to have to do that).

Any help highly appreciated!

Aha, so I just didn't delve far enough into Windows Task Scheduler. Apparently once you create a task to run daily, you can go into advanced options and set it to repeat every 5 minutes for the next 24 hours aswell. That does the trick nicely.

Hey people!

I am almost sure that this is not the right place for that, but after to stay over the subject for two FULL days I am frustrated for not manage to find a straight answer to my needs.

I am a song writer and I would like to protect my compositions by simply adding a trusted timestamp to my mp3 files and prove that I am the first owner of it.

There is a couple sites for music registration in my country (I am from Brasil) that are offering this service but they charge $2.50 per song. I consider it a ripoff once I could find some online services for 15% of this value and even for free. The problem is that either the services I found didn't show to be reliable or it is not easy/intuitive to use.

The two I found for free OriginStamp (Trusted Timestamping with Bitcoin - OriginStamp) and True Timestamp (True Time Stamp - Timestamping Authority) aren't actually file 'timestampers' – or else I didn't understand how they work. As far as I could see after you submit your file (in my case I tried either mp3 and zip ones) they just generate a hash code, probably based on the file header because they do it as soon you submit it. Therefore NOTHING is attached to the file, so it is not certificated. The only thing that's done is that a verification hash is generated and the timestamp is added to the hash and not to the file. Other problem that I noticed is that if I try to check the hash created by OriginStamp with the True Timestamp checking tool the time doesn't match; ... Read more

When i modify a file, e.g. a jpeg photo, the timestamp in 'My Computer' shows the time modified as being an hour ahead of the time it was actually modified. The time on my laptop is, and always has been correct, automatically updating for daylight saving, but 'My Computer' is incorrect.

this was happening before the recent change in daylight saving, a few weeks ago it was roughly 50 minutes out, so I guess it seems to be gaining time?

In other words, for example if I delete number 40 I don't want 41 to change to 40 and all the other numbers to change. I want it as if I typed out the numbers rather than autonmber. There must be a way to do it, but I can't find it.

I have one large folder on a USB drive, I:\Mp3, which contains 400+ folders, each of which is an album, in mixed high quality MP3 or FLAC (the individual albums are either MP3 or FLAC - I now use FLAC for all my ripping of my CDs, so most albums will be in that format; only early ripping was done in 320Kps MP3). There is one folder, Speech, that contains sub-folders, Plays, Comedy, Languages with either more folders or just single MP3 files. Overall some 4000+ individual tracks
I want to find, cheap or free, some software to just point to I:\MP3 folder and the software will convert all the tracks to 128Kps MP3 and maintain the I:\MP3 folder structure, on my main pc, so I can copy the resulting low quality tracks on a 64GB micro SD card for my phone.

It depends on what you want to do with the number, if you want it to only look like 001 instead of 1 then you can just format it. But Access will store it as 1 not 001.
If you want it to be stored as 001 then it would need to be a text field, but it would then not be so suitable for calculations.

Overall, Windows actually works pretty well. It seems like most of what I find most frustrating about this OS can probably be fixed with a few dozen lines of code. It makes me think that either I'm a very unusual customer or the software architects have some peculiar blind-spots.
1. 90% of the time when I want to do an upgrade install (used to be called repair install) is because windows will only start in safe mode or won't start at all. Since you no longer have this option when windows doesn't load completely, it is rendered almost completely useless.
This may just be a side effect of re-defining the repair install as an upgrade to the same OS version, but if it IS still possible to run this process before completely loading windows then I would very much appreciate the editing of the appropriate if/then statement to re-enable the most powerful self-repair feature windows has ever had.
2. When Windows fails to start, it gives messages like "unhandled exception error". This is probably really useful if you already know exactly what function is being called by which program when it causes the system failure.
There is a neat startup option I've occasionally seen in Windows where a console window pops up that shows all the drivers being loaded one by one. If there was a way to make it save each driver name to a file just before it starts (and maybe a second text file to list drivers you DON'T want started), it would have probably saved me close around 20 hours ...

I am trying to change the file so that when the file transfer is complete, a .mp3 file starts playing to notify that all is well. (and also to play a different .mp3 file if the script ends up at ERRORLEVEL1.)

Is this possible?

I have tried a few different commands - run/open/start <filename> - non of which work. Not had much luck using the help command either. Tried Google but not really sure what I am searching for!

Using "call C:\Users\<username>\Program Files\Windows Media Player\wmplayer.exe" I managed to get Media Player to open but totally stumped on how to proceed.
All suggestions appreciated and welcome
Cheers

Andy

Can someone tell me if there is a way to write a batch file to compare the dates of 2 files and if they are not the same return a txt file? Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
 

A:Solved: Batch to compare files

This link may help you. This guy uses a batch file to compare the dates of two files. If the one on his pc is newer, he copies it to the server for backup.

I have lots of jpg pics. I want to be able to do a batch rename, adding in the date
in front of the file name. Example:
file is IMG_1234.jpg
IMG_1235.jpg
and so on for 50 of so pictures.
I want to do a rename that will allow me to insert the date IN FRONT of the file name. IE
03_03_08_IMG_1234.jpg
03_03_08_IMG_1235.jpg

Is the above possible? I have been doing each jpg separately and it's a tedious process.
I want to keep the original file name, but add in the date.
Any ideas?

I want to write a batch file that starts an .exe, and then either closes the .exe, or keeps it running depending on what you choose in the CHOICE command.

So far I've just got the open and close, but no clue on how to do ERRORLEVELs

So far:

@echo off
start /d "C:\Program Files\Synaptics\SynTP" SynTPEnh.exe
echo Would you like to close Synaptics?
choice
taskkill /f /im SynTPEnh.exe /im SynTPHelper.exe

Any ideas much appreciated!

Nevermind, figured out you had to put the == in front of the number of the errorlevel. XD

Marking as solved.

Hello,

I'm trying to make a batch script which will copy the currently selected files to an external hard drive and deletes them afterwards.
(Files I want to delete, but might be important)

Can you put the paths of the currently selected files into a variable?
Or do you need a program to do that?

example:
I select file:
aaa.exe
bvd.txt
new.doc

I run the script and the three files will be exported to my external harddrive. The previously selected files will then be deleted.

Anyone knows how to do this?

Hi,

Does anyone know how I could allocate two passwords to 1000 pdf files ?

I can open each one manually and add them using a few commands but i am aware of the batch processing tool in Acrobat and wondered if anyone knew if adding passwords from say a spreadsheet was do-able?

Thanks, Simon.
