Looking for freeware to append file creation date to filename.

Title says it all.

I need to find decent freeware that can append a file's creation date to the filename.

I have found freeware that can append *a date* to the filename, but you're supposed to specify the date that you want to append. What I want is freeware that can read the creation date, and append that date to the filename.

Anyone know of such a program?

Thanks in advance.

This is easiest with a quick dos/batch script where you can query the date and append it to the file. Just google and you will get the syntax you need.

This worked, thanks! Very easy, and did not need to write scripts (which is good, because I don't know anything about writing scripts).
