I am downloading a file from a remote ftp site.  I want to check the ftp filename creation date time to make sure I dont donwload thesame file twice.

GetFileInformationByHandle is not returning the correct file creation date & time of an FTP file.

What's wrong with this code???

I have this code:

      BOOL bDestFileOpen=FALSE;
      CInternetFile*  ifp=NULL;
      try
      {
            ifp = m_Ftp_Conn->OpenFile(source);
            if(ifp)
            {
                  DWORD dwSizeHigh;
                  DWORD dwSizeLow;
                  BY_HANDLE_FILE_INFORMATION info;
                  ::GetFileInformationByHandle( ifp->m_hFile, &info );
                  dwSizeHigh = info.nFileSizeHigh;
                  dwSizeLow = info.nFileSizeLow;            //this will handle up to 4GIG

...
                  CTime fileTime(info.ftCreationTime.dwLowDateTime);
                  CString temp;
                  temp.Format(L"File Date = %02d/%02d/%04d Time = %02d:%02d:%04d",
                        fileTime.GetMonth(),fileTime.GetDay(),fileTime.GetYear(),
                        fileTime.GetHour(),fileTime.GetMinute(),fileTime.GetSecond());

As the docs state: "Depending on the underlying network components of the operating system and the type of server connected to, the GetFileInformationByHandle function may fail, return partial information, or full information for the given file."

I'd rather suggest to

LPWIN32_FIND_DATA wfd;

HINTERNET hFind = FtpFindFirstFile(fp->m_hFile,source,wfd,INTERNET_FLAG_DONT_CACHE,0);

InternetCloseHandle(hFind);

               CTime fileTime(wfd.ftCreationTime.dwLowDateTime);
               CString temp;
               temp.Format(L"File Date = %02d/%02d/%04d Time = %02d:%02d:%04d",
                    fileTime.GetMonth(),fileTime.GetDay(),fileTime.GetYear(),
                    fileTime.GetHour(),fileTime.GetMinute(),fileTime.GetSecond());

jkr, it would crash on the call to CTime fileTime(wfd->ftCreationTime.dwLowDateTime);

Sorry, typo, that should be

WIN32_FIND_DATA wfd;

HINTERNET hFind = FtpFindFirstFile(fp->m_hFile,source,wfd,INTERNET_FLAG_DONT_CACHE,0);

InternetCloseHandle(hFind);

               CTime fileTime(wfd.ftCreationTime.dwLowDateTime);
               CString temp;
               temp.Format(L"File Date = %02d/%02d/%04d Time = %02d:%02d:%04d",
                    fileTime.GetMonth(),fileTime.GetDay(),fileTime.GetYear(),
                    fileTime.GetHour(),fileTime.GetMinute(),fileTime.GetSecond());
