Win 7 displays incorrect "date modified" on network folders

Hi,

OES2 - SP3
Windows 7 and Windows XP workstations running latest Novell clients.

When browsing network drives, Windows 7 shows folders with Date Modified ranging from 1980 to 2074.
Only affecting folders not files.
Happening on all Windows 7 Machines.
From Windows XP every folder date is correct.

Any ideas?

Hi,

maybe related to our still-open SR#10731094971
(GetFileTime(DirectoryHandle) with NC2 doesn't populate LastWriteTime).
The times returned by NC2 are clearly different from what the XP-client
returned, a lot less information until now :-(. For us it makes NC2
unusable for building stuff with GNU make and similar tools.

Franz.

Have you had an AntiVirus update on the workstation after which you
started seeing this ?

We had the report on Windows XP, which was resolved in

Fix released in "Novell Client 4.91 Post-SP5 (IR1) NWFS.SYS 3"
491psp5ir1_nwfs_3.zip, available at
http://download.novell.com/Download?buildid=m2PZ3f5sx1U~

These file Last modified time-stamps were changed after the Workstation
AV software scanned network folders (but was resolved on the AV side as
well with a newer update).

Can you dupe the same on Windows 7 ?
we would require the details as described in the TID below in order to
make a proper analysis and fix the same for Windows 7 (if the problem is
identical that is)

See http://www.novell.com/support/kb/doc.php?id=7009022

Thanks
Hans
