...perhaps I am not explaining clearly. I have many files that show that they were modified before they were created i.e. Created 08/12/06 Modified 05/07/06. Hope that's clearer. How can you possibly modify a file BEFORE you have created it?
I think I may, just may have an answer. One of my files was modified 8 months earlier than I created it.
In the case of the file (an address card made in publisher) I chose to move it to my documents. The result is the file created in my documents was post dated the time the address card was modified in publisher. if that makes sense?
