Monitor Appending a Date to a File

Hello, I think I've found a way of putting the date to a file:
TOUCH (Resource Kit)

Change file timestamps Syntax TOUCH [option]... files ...Key /t year month day hour minute second. This is a POSIX utility.

Use the optional argument /t to specify a date other than the current time.
( four-digit years, two-digit months, days, hours, minutes, seconds)
You can try this link as well, it might help explain how it works: Description of NTFS date and time stamps for files and folders#

I hope it helps!

I get all goose-pimply when you guys talk DOS....ooooooooooooh

Save a copy of the reg first before doing anything.

For those of us who only "speak a bit of DOS," I seem to recall that one can take that downloaded DOS7, open it up, and copy the whole kit and kaboodle into the system32 file. Do not overwrite any files though. You will be more successful on a FAT32 system. NTFS does not like to use DOS stuff that has not been pre-authorized.

Access the commands from the c:\ in Safe Mode...just like you do a fsc /scannow command ... some will work, the majority won't, you'll have to experiment ...enjoy.

Don't forget to save a copy of the reg first before doing anything. Then shut down and re-open in Safe-Mode Command Prompt...

Worth a try anyway. It shouldn't hurt anything by just sitting there.
