Computer Tips - Its now January, when I view the time on a file (using Explorer) from August its off by an hour.

Date: 2006Jan6 OS: Windows Q. Its now January, when I view the time on a file (using Explorer) from August its off by an hour. What's wrong? A. Daylight savings was in effect back in August. It seems Windows (at least Windows 2000) doesn't take this into account. File times are stored in GMT which doesn't have daylight savings -- its up to the program displaying the file time to correctly convert the time.
