How can I access the true date/timestamp of my recordings on a GOPRO Hero4 Black?

I have a problem accessing the videos and jpg's in the order they were taken.  is there a way toaccess the original capture time.   This seems to be saved witht he file info on the SDcard, but when I upload it with Quik the file is taged with the upload timestamp.

Re: How can I access the true date/timestamp of my recordings on a GOPRO Hero4 Black?

My current workaround is to use Attribute Changer

It is freeware that gives you the ability to alter dates and other attributes quite easily.  It is still a pain because I have to go file by file, one by one to change the date to match the creation dates on my SD card.  Once I've done that I can then geocode my files by using Garmin base camp.  Another reason to maintain the original creation date or Date taken.
