Replace Created and Modify with Content Created Metadata
« on: January 17, 2021, 09:41:28 PM »
Hello! I'm using exiftool v12.14 on Big Sur. On a previous version of the OS I was able to use the following command to replace the Created meta tag with Content Created:

Code: [Select]
exiftool "-filecreatedate<createdate" .
Recently it stopped working for me, I think since I updated my Mac to Big Sur. Now, I get the following error:

Code: [Select]
Warning: Error 18176 running "setfile" to set FileCreateDate - FILENAME
Strangely, I can flip it to "createdate<filecreatedate" and it works, but that's not the direction I want it to go. Any help is appreciated!

Sounds like setfile isn't available. Maybe this post will help?
Troubleshooting hints:
* When posting, include your OS, Exiftool version, and type of file you're processing (MP4, JPG, etc).
* Double all percent signs (%) in a Windows batch file.
* If your GPS coords are negative, make sure and set the GpsLatitudeRef and GpsLongitudeRef tags correctly.
