Twice so far this has occurred (today and four-five days ago).

 

All of a sudden, the time is an hour earlier (3.11pm is displayed as 2.11pm on the computer). This causes issues for CrashPlan.

 

I go to Time & Date settings and it says +12 ahead of UTC (Auckland, NZ), adjust for day light saving automatically enabled.

 

Syncing with time.windows.com corrects the time back to 3.11pm.

Is your bios time set correctly? Is there anything else on your system that may change it automatically? Do you boot linux sometimes?

Windows uses local time for the real time clock whereas many other things use UTC (linux). If you boot between them they can/will change the clock to suit.

Not that I'm aware of. New behaviour since Tuesday.

 

Nope, don't use Linux on this laptop.
