  2. More about file Creation and Modification File Dates

    When a document is copied to a new location, the mod and creation date are changed to the date of the copy. But with picture and video files, these always also retain the original creation date regardless of how many times they were copied or edited.
    Why can’t something like this be implemented for other file types?



    But the system is what it is. For those of you who need to know the actual date a file was created and/or modified, how do you keep track of this? Some files, like PDF’s also retain this data which can be viewed from within Acrobat or the Reader, but
    most other files just rely on Window’s properties. Any suggestions?
