Anyway, without further ado:
- Open Windows Explorer and find a file somewhere on your machine which you worked on back in February. It can be any file: a document, a picture, etc.
- In Windows Explorer, right-click on that file and choose Properties.
- Now, run the Command Prompt. (Start -> Run, and type "cmd"). Change directory to the folder where you found the file from February, and type "dir" to display the directory information.
- Now, tell me:
Does the last-modified time displayed by the "dir" command match the last-modified time displayed in the "Properties" window?
On the systems that I tried it on, the DIR command displays a last-modified time that is 1 hour later than the time showed in Windows Explorer (which, I think, is the correct time).
If you happen to have a system running a version of Windows other than Windows 7, I'd appreciate it if you tried this experiment and let me know what you found.
