Does the date come back if you move the taskbar back to the bottom of the screen? I know the date won't show if the taskbar is at the bottom, and you have Use small icons checked. It should show on the side though with either small or large icons. Can you post a screenshot of it not showing the date?

I'm using the large icons. It reappears when I put the taskbar back on the bottom, but it was also there on the left side for several days when I originally moved the taskbar. Then all of a sudden I noticed it was gone.
One way is to drag the taskbar a little wider. But that will take up more desktop space. The date format is too wide for a sidebar. Otherwise you could try going to the date and time settings and see if you can get one of the shorter format to work.
Personally, I prefer to not have the Windows clock show at all, and use ClockX instead. It can be configured show as to show as much data as the Windows clock, and in a fashion more pleasing to me, without taking up space on the taskbar.
