Owner Detail Report

I'm trying to understand the Owner Detail report we generated from NFR. Some of the information is confusing or doesn't make sense. In the capture below, the create date is after the modify date on most if not all the files shown on the report. Also, it appears that the access date is that same for all the files which doesn't really seem reasonable. I've attached a screeshot of the report. Filter set - Create and Modify and Access Relative Date set to since 5 years ago. Would someone be able to assist on explaning why the create date is after the modify date?

Just curious, if you go to Windows Explorer or a command prompt to get
info on the files do you see the same create, modify, and access dates
that NFR is reporting?

Then it's not an NFR problem. 🙂

trixlopez,

We see the access date issue you've captured fairly often, and it IS the
actual filesystem data. Typically, this is the work of a backup process,
antivirus, or automated script -- something that's gone through the file
system and touched every file, without taking care to correct the Last
Access timestamp.

Likewise, modifications to the Last Modified timestamp are a common
issue -- not every program sets those correctly, and they can be
incorrectly manipulated during file copies and other actions.

Re: Owner Detail Report

Hi so if Dynamic Storage Technology scan the volumes will it also affect the Create, Modify and Access dates?
