    Timestamp parameter

    Hi

    Apologies if already mentioned but is there any chance of a timestamp feature to be included? I'm attempting to archive files last accessed or older than 2 years and this tool is perfect however with the current version v2.2.0.xxxx it appears that this isn't a parameter that can be specified.

    Hello,

    I've given this some thought over the past few days and I've decided that it's too late to add this to the upcoming 2.5 release. However, 2.5 does revamp the signature system a bit which makes it a lot easier to add this kind of thing in a later version.

    Part of me thinks that the built-in Windows search would be just as good for this, unless you're planning to add additional constraints to the search beyond the timestamp alone. FWIW, the last accessed timestamp parameter shouldn't be considered bulletproof - things like backup utilities doing copy or move operations can change the date just as much as opening the file with its associated application.

    Anyway, I'll come back and update this thread at a later date once I've checked how easy it would be to add this in.
