Check how many files have been renamed

Post by migat » 11 Jun 2020, 05:58

My friend was a great person and bought me a license when I finally reached out and asked for one for my Plex server. I wanted to say thank you and provide proof of how much it has done for me. I know if I click History it will tell me XXXX files have been renamed since Sep 27, 2017. So, I have 2 questions:

1 - Is that my install date?

2 - Is there a way to change that start date?

I really want to give my friend an "atta boy" and a sincere thanks, that's all.

Much appreciated!


:idea: The "X number of files renamed since DATE" is just a summary of available history data, and completely unrelated to licensing. You can view / edit / modify the history by opening the history.xml file in the APP_DATA folder.

And what is the date that shows up on my machine? Is that my install date?

Sep 27, 2017

looks like it's the "Created" date of file history.xml
if app from winstore then path something like:

Code: Select all

C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Packages\PointPlanck.FileBot_49ex9gnthnt12\LocalCache\Roaming\FileBot
or

Code: Select all

%userprofile%\AppData\Local\Packages\PointPlanck.FileBot_49ex9gnthnt12\LocalCache\Roaming\FileBot

I suppose that would be the first entry in the history, e.g. if you were to delete the history, and then rename one file, then that date would change to today.

Modifying the file to have the first entry on the date the license was bought for me now shows the proper count (I manually checked) when I open the history section!!! Huzzah.
