is there a way to change "date added"

is there a possible way to change the date a certain audio file was entered into the winamp media library? i'd like to change the date certain files I renamed recently were added (I had to re-add the newly changed filename to the library after I renamed them).
I assume this info is kept in some data repository, and may or may not be easy to change.

There are several free utilities available on the internet to change these types of file attributes (https://www.online-tech-tips.com/com...s-and-folders/).

After you've made the changes you want, use the Winamp general preference (Media Library - Local Library - Watch Folders) option to re-scan your media library files. After the re-scan completes, the file records for all files with changes will be updated. Open and refresh a media library view (switch to another view and back or click the Search button) containing the changed file records to verify the changes were made.
