I have small problem to set date/time
I usually use file name as filen ame [22.05.01] 012039 => [] hour min sec

I tried to use Timestamp pattern as [<Year>.<Month>.<Day>] <Hour><Min><Sec>
but Year form needs to be 2022.
so it doesn't work.
<Year:00> also doesn't work.

if I change file name as [2022.05.01] 012039, then it works.

how can I set date/time from [22.05.01] 012039 ??

please.. help me..
have a nice day.

Set the timestamp as normal - which will result in year = 22

Then add a second Timestamp method using "Delta date and time" to add 2000 to Year

Reply to #2:
Alternatively, first Rename the files to convert 2-digit file timestamp years to 4-digits...

Replace: ^\[(\d{2}\.)
with: [20\1
Use regular expressions

Run the batch and then, in a separate pass, run the Timestamp method.

Note that the Timestamp method will always work on the ORIGINAL filename so you will not be able to do this in a single batch.
