OFF TOPIC - File date create vs date modified RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Where could I get more info on how microsoft uses the date attributes on a file and directory.  I have questions like:

    When does the create and modified attributes change for a file and for a directory?

    Does it change when the content is changed?

    Does it change when the file name is changed?

    What happens when a file or a directory is copied? Are these attributes also copied as is?

    Does one of these attributes get reset when files or directories are copied?

    Is the behaviour for files in this respect always the same as for directories or not?

    Surely there must be a doc somewhere describing the workings of these file attributes and others?
