File creation time
Posted on 2004-03-20
I'm try to figure out what the exact creation time of a file is. I've used
which will give me the time Windows thinks the file was created. But I need the absolute time it was created. For example, if I create a txt file on one computer, then send it to another computer, and use GetFileTime() on it, what will be returned is the time that it was made on the end user's machine, not the time it was created at the original computer.
Is it possible to get this information? I need it to check if a file I'm examining is the original file or just a copy.
