  1. Wrong File date


    Hi,


    I'm facing a problem with the file's date. When I download the file I found that it shows a different date than it suppose to be.


    When I open the file properties Dialog Box it shows the correct date, but in the file explorer the data is wrong.


    Please see the below photo.

    Wrong file modification dates/times

    I use ActiveSync 4.5 to synchronize my Mobile WM6.1 with my PC WinXP, SP3. I synchronize Office items and files.

    ActiveSync

    • owerwrites file dates (modified date to be specific) with current transmission date
    • sometimes resyncs all files with no understandable reason and then changes all file dates to current date.
    I know this is a known issue but I could not find any reasonable answer on that nasty behaviour. ActiveSync should synchronize files and not spoil them.

    Does anybody know exactly how ActiceSync works?

    For reproduction of the problem I made an experiment. Protocol follows. Issues that are ok are marked with "+++". Issues that are bugs in my opinion are marked with "---"

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    File created on Mobile, later edited,

    Not attached to PC

    ==> On Mobile:

    Create Time: 17:32

    Modify Time: 17:37

    (Note: I have a tool "TreeSize Mobile" that is able to show creation, change and last access date on WM)

    Now USB cable attached.

    ActiveSync syncs the file to the PC

    ==> On PC:

    Create Time: 17:40

    Modify Time: 17:40

    --- This is wrong. Time of transmission, not file dates.

    +++ But maybe ok because the file is really created on the PC at this time.

    ==> On Mobile:

    Create Time: 17:32

    Modify Time: 17:37

    +++ This is still unchanged and correct

    Even after following runs of ActveSync from other reasons these dates stay unaltered since the file is not transferred again.

    +++ This is correct but strange, because the file on the PC is newer than on the mobile.

    --- Bug or feature?

    Now the File is edited on the PC.

    The Mobile is still attached.

    Immediately after save of the file:

    ==> On PC:

    Create Time: 17:40

    Modify Time: 18:12

    A short time later the file is transferred to the Mobile.

    And back again!

    --- Why back again?

    ==> On Mobile:

    Create Time: 17:32

    Modify Time: 18:13

    --- This is wrong. Time of transmission, not file date.

    ==> On PC:

    Create Time: 17:40

    Modify Time: 18:13

    --- This is wrong. Time of transmission, not file date.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I cannot reproduce the case when ActiveSyncs resynchronizes all (!) files. But when it happens then all file modification dates on both ends are wrong, namely current transmission date. Creation dates sometimes survive, sometimes not.

    All in all: Never use file dates on your Mobile. They are totally unreliable.

  4. Wrong File date

    Date on the saved file is wrong

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I understand your concern, and we in Community will try to help you in the best possible way we can.

    The issue that you are facing might be due to corrupted file and folders.

    I suggest you to follow the below methods and check if it helps:

    Method 1: Perform System File Checker (SFC) scan, to repair the missing/corrupted system files.

    a) Press ‘Windows + X’ Keys.

    b) Click on ‘Command Prompt (Admin)’ to bring up an elevated command prompt.

    c) Note: Click ‘Yes’ if it prompts for permission.

    d) In the command prompt type in the following command and then press
    Enter.

    sfc /scannow



    Method 2: Check in “clean boot” state, to check if any third party application is causing the issue. Follow these steps to start the computer in clean boot.

    Step A:

    a) Press the ‘Windows + R’ key on the keyboard.

    b) In the ‘Run’ windows type
    ’MSCONFIG’ and click ‘Ok’.

    c) Click the ‘Boot’ tab and uncheck
    ‘Safe Boot’ option.

    d) On the ‘General’ tab, click to select the option
    ‘Selective startup’, and then click to clear the option
    Load startup items
    check box.

    e) On the ‘Services’ tab, click to select the
    ‘Hide all Microsoft services’ check box, and then click
    ‘Disable all’
    .

    f) On the ‘Startup’ tab, click ‘Open Task Manager’.
    In the Task Manager window under startup tab,
    right click on each startup item which are enabled and select ‘Disable’.

    g) Click ‘OK’, and then click Restart.



    Step B: Enable half of the services

    a) Follow steps 1a and 1b to start the System Configuration utility.

    b) Click the Services tab, and then click to select the
    Hide all Microsoft services check box.

    c) Click to select half of the check boxes in the
    Service list.

    d) Click OK, and then click
    Restart
    .



    Step C: Determine whether the problem returns.

    If the problem still occurs, repeat step 1 and step 2. In step 2, click to clear half of the check boxes that you originally selected in the
    Service list.

    If the problem does not occur, repeat step 1 and step 2. In step 2, select only half of the remaining check boxes that are cleared in the
    Service list. Repeat these steps until you have selected all the check boxes.

    If only one service is selected in the Service list, and you still experience the problem, the selected service causes the problem. Go to step 6. If no service causes this problem, go to
    Step 4.

    Step D: Enable half of the Startup items:

    If no startup item causes this problem, a Microsoft service most likely causes the problem. To determine which Microsoft service may be causing the problem, repeat step 1 and step 2 without selecting the
    Hide all Microsoft services check box in either step.



    Step E: Determine whether the problem returns:

    If the problem still occurs, repeat step 1 and step 4. In step 4, click to clear half of the check boxes that you originally selected in the
    Startup Item list.

    If the problem does not occur, repeat step 1 and step 4. In step 4, select only half of the remaining check boxes that are cleared in the
    Startup Item list. Repeat these steps until you have selected all the check boxes.

    If only one startup item is selected in the
    Startup Item
    list, and you still experience the problem, the startup item that is selected in the list is the service that is causing the problem. Go to step 6.

    If no startup item causes this problem, a Microsoft service most likely causes the problem. To determine which Microsoft service may be causing the problem, repeat step 1 and step 2 without selecting the
    Hide all Microsoft services check box in either step.



    Step F: Resolve the problem:

    After you determine the startup item or the service that causes the problem, contact the program manufacturer to determine whether the problem can be resolved. Or, run the System Configuration utility, and then click
    to clear the check box for the problem item.



    Step G: Reset the system to Normal startup mode:

    Note: After you have finished troubleshooting, follow these steps to boot to normal startup.

    a) Press the ‘Windows + R’ key on the keyboard.

    b) In the ‘Run’ windows type
    MSCONFIG and click ‘Ok’.

    c) On the ‘General’ tab, click the
    ‘Normal Startup’ option, and then click ‘OK’.

    d) When you are prompted to restart the computer, click
    ‘Restart’.



    Hope the information helps, if you have any further queries, feel free to post. We are here to assist you.
