I have jpg files name by date like this:

mmddyymmss.jpg or mmddyymmss-1.jpg or mmddyymmss-1a.jpg, etc

I am trying to set the date created, modified using the filename pattern:


When I add files to the batch, they do not give me any errors.

When I run the batch, the modified, created dates do not change. Even if I set to copy to a new folder, the dates do not change. All of these folders have full permissions set to everyone.

I was able to change dates on other jpgs, I am wondering if the date being in 2 characters is causing a problem? I even loaded all of the jpgs into photoshop and batch resaved them as new jpgs to make sure the files weren't corrupted somehow, but it didn't help.

Likely the year must be 4 digits..? datetime
All tags except <Year> have a length of two characters at all time.
