A staff member bought this to my attention today...
Workstations are running Windows 7 Enterprise, BIOS/Regional settings etc all correct.
All users have their My Documents directed to a folder on a Win2003 server.

Now for some reason, when a file is created (Word, Excel, etc), it appears with the correct creation date. Then later on the file is modified and saved - the modify date then somehow appears as being before the creation date.

ie:
Create document which has date of 19/04/2011  4:31pm
Modify document and save out at 4.35pm
Modify date on the file appears as 12/01/2011 3:14pm

Now this is all 3rd hand at the moment, I havent been given a "live" example yet and probably wont until tomorrow but anyone come across this issue before ?

TIA

Timezone settings... but that should only be hours?
Wrong time on the server?

I have seen some very strange timestamps when using SMB file share, when the client is using Linux kernel SMBFS driver during daylight saving time (timezone offset 13 hours from UTC), but never with the CIFS driver in Linux 2.6 kernel and never with a Windows client.

Nope, time on server etc all good. This apparently occurs at multiple branches, not just one...but as I said before, its 3rd hand info so dont think it will be multiple :)
