Does anyone know of a utility that can edit ProDos FILE & DIRECTORY time/date stamps? Or at least create them?

I'm in the process of restoring some disks and I find myself in need of such a tool. It can be either on the PC or Apple II side of things.

Thx!

SpeedyG, Keatah,

the documents are included in the downloaded zip file... so no need to download the manual again.

Have fun

I'm not familiar with everything. That's the continuing joy and fun of classic computing. Learn something new everyday.

Yes. That seems to get the job done. Thx!

P.S. I was disappointed that CiderPress didn't do this. As well as anything from Glen Bredon, like the ProSel utilities. Or even Copy II+. Beagle Bros seems to have thought of everything.
