Getting File Creation Date

I have 4 files that I want to update in my C:\winnt\system32 directory.  The file dates of the old files are 1/20/2000 and the new file dates are 1/20/2002.  There are only 4 files to replace, but I want only replace these files with the new dated files.  How can I test for date on the file?

you could use fso:

   Set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
   Set f = fs.GetFile("C:\windows\desktop\copy of Calc.doc")
   msgbox f.DateCreated
   msgbox f.DateLastAccessed
   msgbox f.DateLastModified
