Windows 7: Why does setupapi.offline.log show dates several years before purchase

Why does setupapi.offline.log show dates several years before purchase

Not sure whether this is an obvious issue or an unusual event...

At our office we have a Dell laptop that was purchased new in 2014 and we are trying to understand why the setupapi.offline.log has entries e.g. 12th March 2011 and other 2011 dates. These dates appear inconsistent with the timeline of purchase and the image/build which was 2014?

The 2011 date is not supported in any of the other setupapi logs.

Can anyone shed light on this, please?

This might give you an insight => Deployment Troubleshooting and Log Files.

It appears to be part of the setup process where Windows Setup writes logs into memory, specifically in a Windows PE session [X:\Windows] and thereafter into C:\Windows.log.

I hope this helps!
