    deleting "Date Taken" from batches of files

    JeffGreenberg Level 1

      Wanted to do this.  Tried two ways:

       

      a. Windows folder > Organize > Remove properties > Remove the following properties** > Select all

      **also tried other choice = create copy with all metadata deleted

      b. Photoshop CS6 action recorded to apply to batch > File Info > Origin tab > manually deleted Date Taken > saved, closed

       

      Both ways result in Date Taken becoming "1/1/1900 5:28:04 AM" with specific time varying but not real time action occurred...

       

      I am trying to eliminate as much Date related metadata as possible, especially Date Taken;

      date modified ie today's date is OK if not deletable...  Advice appreciated.
