Viewing any file’s modified date on an ftp site.
When viewing using Win XP computer the modified date shows 10/1/yyyy 10:00 am
When viewing using Win 7 computers (3) the modified date shows 10/1/yyyy 3:00 am
All computers show Time Zone = Arizona and same time.
Why do Win 7 computers show different modified date/time than XP?
7 hour offset.

It is 7 hours off because the server is (properly) reporting the time in GMT and you are in Arizona so that is GMT -7.

Doing a search using Google this appears to be an issue with Windows 7.  It is ignoring information that is sent to it by the ftp server.
