I copied some file from a share on a 2003 server to my local machine

Before copy Modified date is 8/6/2008
Before copy Create date is 3/19/2008
After Copy The file Modified date is 8/6/2008
After copy The Created Date is 10/21/2008
The Owner was ceitaa000222\administrator
The New owner after copying the file is domainname\username

So actually based on what I see if you copy a file from one server or workstation to another the Last Modified date doesnt change but the create date will change if it never existed where you copied it, and it would stick your name on as the owner because you created the file in the new location if the file didnt already exist.

What I want to know is why would the owner name in the dos dir /q show default/Administrators group and the owner name in Windows Explorer shows a Username.  Which one is correct? and Why?

The DOS dir /q command can be limited in correctly interpreting the owner info when using it on a network share--particularly if the share is mapped to a drive letter (whether you specified the drive letter or the UNC in the dir command).  The owner displayed by Windows Explorer is the correct information.
