A command line utility to Get and Set* any Windows Property of a file
|Our Products Home||
If you've ever needed to access file metadata properties from a command line, batch, PowerShell, or other scripting languages, TouchProp will allow you to access most metadata properties exposed by the Windows property system.
* For those properties that are read-write.
The Windows property system provides a generic interface to access file system and file metadata properties. Almost everything about a file that you can see, and where possible change, via Windows Explorer is exposed through the property system. TouchProp uses this programmatic interface to provide a means of reading and writing these properties from a command line program.
You can find more information on the Windows property system here.

Your feedback please
This is an early public release to get your feedback on this program. I've developed and tested it against a variety of files, but it now needs more people to try it. There's likely to be things that I've forgotten to write about here and things that may not work correctly, so please let me know via email of anything you encounter that's not covered in this document. Equally valuable to me is knowing what you're doing with it so that I can make it better suit your needs, so again, please let me know.
Thanks for your feedback.
