Hi, Kayakera:

 

Check the system date. If correct, change it to 2018 and try to open the docs again. This is an unusual behaviour today but was a simple solution to hack very old trial version programs.

 

If you can open them, save again overwriting them to try to fix the time stamp.

 

Are this docs allocated in a server? A server is another computer with his own timestamp. Maybe copying them to your own computer stamp a new date.

 

If the problem is the stamped date in your documents, is not an InDesign issue. Maybe you must ask some experienced system administrator or search the internet on how to change timestamps.

 

Good luck!

Why not find all instances of old font using and not change to the ttf/otf version of this font? Or your font really never have new "version"? 

Remember, never say you can't do something in InDesign, it's always just a question of finding the right workaround to get the job done. © David Blatner

You should still be able to open the file. If you close the message or click okay (I have no idea what the message looks like since I haven't used a Type 1 font in ages) what happens?
