My company lost power today at 4:15pm.  Upon getting the servers restarted it appears that all of the dates and times on my folders are 6/16/08 4:15.  Can anyone tell me why this is happening?  Is there a way to reverse it?

Need more detail.  Are the clocks on your servers accurate?  It's not likely that you are going to be able to reverse it, because once a create date is written on an object, it will remain until that object recreated.  Access times will be updated when accessed, etc...

The server times are accurate.  It has changed the created dated, does that mean when the power failed and the server went down, all of the files were recreated?
