  1. Explorer doesn't change file dates


    My Windows Explorer doesn't change the file dates for some files after they have been modified. It is a property of the file: some consistently change while others consistently stay the same. Refresh does not help.

    It looks like there are two file dates as I can see the correct date when I browse a directory in FileZilla.

    Does anyone have an idea how I can get rid of this "feature"?

    :)

  3. Windows Explorer dates

    When I "save as" and move emails or document to storage in File Explorer the date shown in File Explorer seems to always be the date I moved it to storage. I can see how to change the column name from "date modified" to "date created", but the actual date
    doesn't change. If I am late moving emails from Outlook to storage in File Explorer, the current date has no real value, especially if there is a series of emails/documents and replies. They all end up with the same after-the-fact date. How do I get it to
    show "date created"?

    Date created changes when I move a jpg file in File Explorer for W10: I noticed something disconcerting: sometimes, when I move a jpg file to another folder, the date created timestamp is changed to the time I do this.
