Windows 7: File search (by date range) displays incorrect Mod Date in results

15 Feb 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
File search (by date range) displays incorrect Mod Date in results

Searching for files modified in a specified date range (of the past 3 days) gets a search result list titled "date modified", and with the column heading "Date Modified" but the date listed against a file modified today is wrong. The date displayed matches the file creation date & is within the specified range ... but how do I know what the Search is doing?

Can't trust it... !

That is very strange. Bump for a possible solution, since I can't think of one off the top of my head.

Increasing System Restore date range
Hi guys. I am new to Win 7. I notice that when I run system restore the furthest back I can go is about 2 weeks. In XP when I run restore it pops up a calendar and allows me to go back several months. Is there any way to configure Win 7 to restore back 2 months? Thanks. Techgal
