Absolute Date & Time Stamps (or) Zone


Recommended Posts

I don't understand what you mean -- is this metadata in the file? Or the file's actual timestamp? I need more information ... screenshot would help. I've never heard of this.

Sorry to hijack this old thread but google brought me here after I found an issue with timestamping of "Save as..." files.

 

If I save a file as a JPG from a PDN, it seems to inherit the metadata of the original file and leaves me with a file created (in this case) 4 days ago. If I save as PNG, I get a file created "now".

 

(note if I save the PDN first, then Save As... JPG it seems to work)

Minor issue but it was a headscratcher when I was trying to find the file I'd just created.....

Wow, google sends me to the same page I commented on two years ago....

 

Still the same challenge. "Save as..." inherits time from, something (it's NOT the PDN, because I saved it right before save as, and the PDN's timestamp is 3.5 hours newer than the JPG created immediately after)

Explorer has columns for Date, Date Created, Date Modified, and a few others. It also uses something called tunneling to make sure that the Date Created is maintained even if the file is deleted and replaced in a short amount of time.

 

Make sure you are looking at the Date Modified column, not just "Date". You may need to add the column in Explorer.

 

This is how Windows does things. Has nothing to do with Paint.NET, which has no code for doing anything with the file's timestamps.
