    File timestamp changes when copying from C: to E:-need tool to fix


    I have a series of files for which I need to change both the Windows Explorer date and the internal EXIF dates. These photos were taken with a Nikon DSLR, where the camera's clock got reset due to battery backup issues. I'm looking for a tool that will allow me to change Windows dates for a file, so i don't get this problem of the wrong timestamp when I copy files. It's "complicated" because of timezone issues.

    I restored these photo files from backup to C:\temp, my universal "scratch" folder. Here is one such file:

    When I copied this file to E:\Photo, the timestamp changed by 10 hours.

    The problem with this series of photos is that I took them before I realized that the camera clock was wrong. The clock started running at 1/1/2007 at 00:00 only when I turned on the camera (I've duplicated this) so I must have taken this photo about 30 minutes after turning on the camera. As I said, there was a problem the the backup battery.
    Actually, this photo was taken 4/14/2017 (or 14/4/2017 for friends in Europe). The photo's timestamp is 1/1/2007 because of the clock setting issue.I need to get the dates and times right so that the Nikon photos will properly time-sort with photos taken by my iPhone and my wife's iPhone.

    The photos were created in Copenhagen, GMT+1 time zone, and then copied from my camera's memory card to my laptop in that time zone. But I live in California, GMT-8. The files were backed up with my backup program when I got home from the trip, and then restored from backup also at GMT-8. Whenever I review photos, I always change my system to the time zone where they were taken, so it's easy to remember where I was that day.

    To add to the "complication" here, neither of these dates corresponds to the internal EXIF date for the photo.

    So I want to fix both the internal EXIF dates and match them with the Windows Explorer date.
    To fix the internal EXIF data in each photo, my go-to tool is EXIFTool GUI. Using EXIFToolGUI, it's easy to change all the EXIF dates. However, EXIFToolGUI automatically changes with Windows file date, instead of giving me control about how much to change that date.

    Java.nio.file - Copying files

    You can't copy a folder, thats why it generates an exception (you are trying to copy a folder using a copy file function).
    You probably need to list all the files inside that folder and copy one by one

    Step 7 Once your Bios has been flashed simply 'Ctrl+Alt+Delete' to restart your PC
