I would like to redate the created date of folders, to be the same as the modified date.

Have Advanced Renamer open with 1 folder
selected 'Timestamp'
tagged 'Apply to: [X] Created date and time'
tagged 'Modified date and time'

Added Column : Created
Added Column: New Created

Now what?

Note: there is no column modified.

When trying to run this, I got an error.

Any suggestions?

Maybe it is a bug, I don't know. If it is, let's hope it is going to be fixed.
Because of system issues (something with RAID and having to restore/new install Windows, etc.) many many folders (hundreds) are set to a certain date - date of Windows install.
That is why I want to change the date back to last modified date - modified date is still correct.
Meanwhile, as a workaround, I found a tool named 'FolderTimeUpdate' (Nirsoft).
You may wish to run this in simulation mode first, to see what it does.
