I need to provide our company with details of files created before 1999. Having done a scan of our shared drives I'm seeing some files with creation dates like 1st January 1980, 1st January 1970, 31st December 1979. I think it's unlikely these files where actually created on these dates. In the past I've even seen creation dates like 1900, 1920 etc.
Could anyone let me know why I'm seeing the strange file creation dates?
