Time stamp changes when copying files

Post by docfxit » 27 Jul 2010, 18:00

Why is it that the time on all files change by one hour when I copy them from one computer to another?

Both computers are running
Win7 Ultimate.
Both are set for the same time.
Both are in the same time zone.

I'm copying from a USB drive connected to computer one over the network to the hard drive on computer two.

How can I prevent the change in time?

Thanks,

Docfxit

All kinds of time issues.

FAT32 vs NTFS, timezone, daylight savings time ... Royal pain in the arse if you ask me.

Anyhow, Salamander has various settings now to accommodate things.
Two second differentials, one/two hour differentials, ...

Compare Directories - File Time Issues

Directory Compare breaks for time differences

Compare folders - Files one hour difference
WinXP Pro SP3 or Win7 x86 | SS 2.54

I know Salamander has great ways of getting around the issues.

It would be really nice even though the problems are not created in Salamander for Salamander to correct the issues so that the differences wouldn't be created in the first place.

Thank you,

Can you please give more details, such as
1) which timestamp (created, modified, accessed)?
2) source and target file system?
3) files or folders?
4) on one particular file, which timestamp do you see on computer two in AS on the source volume, in AS on the target volume after copying, both also in Explorer, and also what timestamp do you see on the computer one in AS and Explorer?
5) And what if you copy the file in Explorer, also on computer two?
6) when did you actually make the copy? This week or before Daylight time change?

Anyway, unfortunately I do not think AS can influence anything, see the other posts.
