Windows 7: File timestamp issue...

File timestamp issue...

Here's a strange one...

I'm doing work on the laptop downstairs - I make a change to a file, ftp it, then I go back to my text editor only to be told 'the file has been edited outside this program, do I want to reload it?'. It happens A LOT so I'd like to resolve it if possible.

I'm using PSPad but I don't think its an application issue, it must be to do with the Network.

I have a desktop connected via ethernet to a router, and a laptop connected wirelessly. The PCs are on a Homegroup, and both on Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit.

The files are stored on the desktop, and I access them across the Homegroup on the laptop.

Both PCs have had the time correctly set with 'internet time'.

Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm stumped! Never seen this before.

Maybe your ftp program is changing it?

Is the program your creating file in still open?

You need to close out the program

In fact, its nothing to do with FTP.

I open a text editor, open a file, change and save it, minimize the text editor, bring it back up again and I get the message 'this file has been changed'.

That's what I was thinking it was,. so did you save and then close out of the text editor?

Could there be a problem with the time and date setting on the two machines, being out of sync.

No the two machines are perfectly in synch, I ran the 'windows time' thing on both. No I don't close and restart the text editor as that would be impossible for me to do every time I make a change.

It seems like it may be a bug with the text editor I'm using (PSPad). I'll update if not.
