We have a Cobian backup apps that is configured to backup 'increment' form.   However, after upgrading our computers to Windows 10, for some reason, it detects that the files programmed to backup, reads them ALL as "not backed"; thus, running a backup for over 30gb of data.

We figure that the best bet to have the apps running again as increment is:

Search all files in backup area for files last modified after the correct backup performed which was 12/8/2015
Change the configuration of those files identified as modified after 12/8/2015 to NOT-BACKED-UP (don't know the correct technical wording to Not0Backed-Up-Status)
Run the Cobian apps again so it can backup all modified after 12/8/2015

We came to this conclusion based on the properties of the files in this periodic backup routine we have setup (see below)
backup or not status
Please advice what Windows program we can use to find the files modified after 12/8/2015 and what windows program we can use to change
