Set a file's creation and modification date RRS feed


  • Hi,

    As you noted, the DateCreated property of StorageFile class is read-only.

    The API SetFileTime function is mainly used to set or change related file dates. But it applies to "Desktop app only". It is not available in Metro style app.

    Metro style app runs in restricted sandox environment. Many restrictions are related to security considerations.

    Best wishes,
