Touch single case file modification date

After exporting a case catalogue into single cases files all CAS files have the modification date set to the date of export

This is by design because the file is created for the first time when you make the export.

If you are an experienced user you can change the modification date to the date encoded in the file name.


Note: This is for advanced users only. Use at your own risk.


Download and install the UnxUtils. This may run only on 32bit System. What you need is the file called touch.exe. If you already have another implementation of touch check the parameters required and adjust them in the following batch script.

Download the batch script called touchcasfiles.bat to your folder containing the exported CAS files. Double click to start this batch file. It will run over all CAS files in the current folder.
