Change in the dates after CDs are burn using Win 2000 as the OS
Posted on 2003-11-27
i work for a pharmaceutical company where security, procedures, data storage, etc, etc is taken very seriously. most of the PCs are using win 2000 but we still have some NT machines around. the NT boxes are usually the PCs that control instruments and the producers of the controlling software are very peculiar with the OS that is used. probably becuz they are too lazy to test it everytime that a new OS comes out.
this is the problem:
i use Easy CD creator to burn backup data into CDs and there is no prblem there. now the issue is that when the quality assurance people look at the data the date that is was created is impossible to be right. this is how it happens:
-lab people started an experiment at 10:00 AM
-the experiment ended at 11:00
-data gets burn at 11:00
-if we check the date in the file after it is burn, it shows something like 8:30 or 9:00 AM
another thing, the clocks in all the computers are syncronized by the server (domain controller) so there is no apparent chance that this is the probelm,
is this a problem with the burning software ???
again the time that i am interested in observing is the created and last accessed which in both cases is always later than the time that it shows after the file is burn,
what is wrong here ??
