    Change multiple Date Modified entries


    Is it possible to achieve the following by either command prompt, PowerShell, batch file, VBS script or any other tool please?

    I have folders containing subfolders, and in each subfolder there is a single file with extension '.ino', with the same filename as the subfolder. For example parent folder XYZ contains subfolder SubABC and in that is a file named SubABC.ino.

    But here's the thing. Somehow the Date Modified entries for all the subfolders like ABC have lost their original Modified dates. The INO files have retained them correctly.

    So I want to automatically change all the subfolder Date Modified entries to be identical to the Date Modified entry of their INO file of the same name.

    All suggestions would be much appreciated please.

    Terry

    :)
