The values in the date time pickers on the screenshots are in German because these pictures were created on a German system.

With this function all files in the folder will be set to the entered attributes
When a directory is opened in the right area, the time information of all files (with or without subfolders) within the current folder can be modified with the function "Change the content of the folder (not the folder)!"
After this operation the information of the selected folder will be shown, that can be different from the entered datas.
If this is supposed to be avoided, the time can be first transferred to the folder with "Force the times" and after that be carried out for all files.
Notice: With this function only the files (+sub folders) in the directory are set on the adjusted data. The directory itself remains untouched.
