Timestamp question

Q: Timestamp question


I shipped a USB hard drive to a customer that has a WAV and WMA file on it. I had timestamped the WAV and WMA file with the same date/time, "Sept 20 1:00 pm". There is a reason we need the WAV and WMA file to have the exact same date/time.

The customer has Vista (64 bit), and lives in a time zone that is 3 hours ahead of me.

For the customer, the WMA file shows up "Sept 20 1:00 pm", and the WAV file shows up "Sept 20 4:00 pm".

Why did this happen, and anyone have any suggestions on how to fix it/ prevent it from happening? Troubleshooting tips? Could it be some kind of permissions issue? And basically, how can we get the files to have the same timestamp?

(Note: I simplified the problem a bit - assume that there are many files, and it's not practical for the customer to timestamp the files himself.)

Thanks, Andrew

Preferred Solution: Timestamp question

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)



I'm thinking about a following problem:
I need to synchronize time between multiple users, and also prevent them from lying about their time when they send certain important packets to the server (not every packet). I know that NTP solves first problem, but I've been wondering if it's possible to solve second one by enabling this option for those important packets and making sure time differences between user and first few routers he connects through stay close to constant.

I can't find much information on this option though, mostly stuff like "Internet timestamp is a forced option used for debugging purposes only!" which is a bit worrying. What issues might I run into with it?

Best regards.

OK, this is probably a really dumb question, but I'm going to ask it anyway....because I really don't know the answer.

I live on the East Coast (Newfoundland, Canada, to be exact). Now, I have a friend who lives in Los Angeles. So when I get an email from him that's timestamped, say, 2:00 PM...is that 2:00 his time, or 2:00 my time?

Like I said, I know this is probably a bit of a dumb question, but I would really appreciate some input. Thanks!

Last night I forgot and left my system turned on. This morning AVG7 gave me a Warning Interruption saying that Windows\System32\shell32.dll and Windows\System32\kernel.dll had changed. When I looked into the details of what had changed, the explanation was "TimeStamp, August 13, 11:28pm."

This appears to be some kind of change to my system, but I have no idea what "TimeStamp"
is related to, but more importantly, whether or not it's harmful.

Any constructive help will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

This was discussed in a previous (closed) thread, but i can't see that it was resolved.
I routinely use an ftp server located on the east coast (GMT-5). I sit in Hawaii, GMT-10. Server clock and my clock are both correct.

When looking at files on the server, I see timestamps that are essentially the equivalent of GMT-15. Two of us on the phone looking at the same file on the same server see different time stamps.

This is new since i began using Vista this week. Didn't happen with my prior XP machine. Any ideas?

I've just recently realized that copying folders to a backup hard drive resets their "created" date. Should my computer ever crash, all my backup files will state to have just been created on that certain date.

Me, being the organize-freak I am, have been looking for a solution so my backed up files can have the same time stamps as on my computer right now.

I've done a little searching, and have found that people always recommend Robocopy. Problem is, I can't understand a word of the tutorials. Is there anyone with a layman's explanation for how to run Robocopy to carry out what I want?

And also just for the heck of it, is Robocopy the only solution? Is there some sort of back up program on Windows 7 that can do that?


A:Timestamp/Robocopy help

Some of the other posters have had similar problems, book1245, so here are a couple of references to other posts that might offer a little bit of guidance:

There’s some help for you in this thread: "Date Modified" changes when copying... Take a look at the post from Bill2 which has, among other things, this site: How to copy or move files and folders whilst maintaining their original time date stamp. | TechHead.co.uk, (and offers advice about your Robocopy problem as well), and the post from Casca which offers this advice: In a command window, run [xcopy] with the following switches: /s/e/c/a/k/h.

A:Timestamp change

Not sure what you are asking? You are trying to change the timestamp of a text file to show that it was accessed/modified at a different time than it was? If so, that's not possible, to the best of my knowledge.

I'm also curious as to the 'why' part of it.

I'm trying to insert a timestamp as part of a file name and I realized that there is something basic about a timestamp that I do not understand:

Assume the output for echo %time% is 16:13:07.91.

Why is echo %time:~3,2% equal to 13? Does the colon not count as a character? In %date% the slash (/) does count as a character.

A:Inserting a Timestamp into a File Name

Aha - got this one solved.

The 'trick' is that the first character on the left is in the zero-ith position, not the first position. If echo %time% is 16:13:07.91, the '1' in 16 is in the zero-ith position and the 6 is in the first position.

To see this, try echo %time:~0,1% and you'll find that the result is the first character in the current time.

Going back to my original question about the time 16:13:07.91: 1 is in the zero-ith position, 6 is in the first position, the colon [:] is in the second position and 1 is in the third position. That's why echo %time:~3,2% is equal to 13.

Think digital! In the digital world, 0 isn't 'nothing,' it's a unique number.

Now I understand why some people prefer to indicate the time and date in a batch file by counting backwards from the right instead of forwards from the left. No pesky '0' to confuse you.

This one is driving me nuts. Running Outlook Express 6.0 on XP sp3. The system clock and time zone are correct. When I send an email from another box, the received timestamp is off by 5 hours. (Except for DST, this is our GMT offset). If I retrieve the same email in Thunderbird, the timestamp is right.

Server time and zone are correct, as verified by viewing the same email in Horde online. The "sent" timestamp in OE is correct, but the "received" is not. We're using a dedicated server, and I changed the server time to see what would happen. This had absolutely no effect on the 5 hour difference displayed in OE. (Though the change showed up when the same message was checked in Horde).

I've looked, but found no settings in OE itself that might be causing this. Can anyone help? Thanks.

A:Outlook Express Timestamp


OE uses UTC - Universal Time Coordinate - which happens to be the same as GMT.

UTC is also found in Event Viewer and probably other stuff aswel.

Hi, how do I add a timestamp to all of my images on my pc?

A:Adding timestamp to images

Where do you want to add it?
In printed photos?
As text appearing on the actual photo?
In the filename?

Are these photos from a digital camera? There is a timestamp embedded into these files. You can view it in Windows Explorer, by viewing 'Date Taken'.

Xnview, a free photo editor can do all these things using the embedded date. You can also batch process multiple photos.

Here's a strange one...

I'm doing work on the laptop downstairs - I make a change to a file, ftp it, then I go back to my text editor only to be told 'the file has been edited outside this program, do I want to reload it?'. It happens A LOT so I'd like to resolve it if possible.

I have a desktop connected via ethernet to a router, and a laptop connected wirelessly. The PCs are on a Homegroup, and both on Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit.

The files are stored on the desktop, and I access them across the Homegroup on the laptop.

Both PCs have had the time correctly set with 'internet time'.

When i modify a file, e.g. a jpeg photo, the timestamp in 'My Computer' shows the time modified as being an hour ahead of the time it was actually modified. The time on my laptop is, and always has been correct, automatically updating for daylight saving, but 'My Computer' is incorrect.

this was happening before the recent change in daylight saving, a few weeks ago it was roughly 50 minutes out, so I guess it seems to be gaining time?

A:BSOD Windows 7 [[re: ...timestamp for ntkrnlpa.exe]]

Most likely the ntkrnlpa.exe error is due to improper symbols being loaded (or not loading at all) when running WinDbg. I didn't get that error when I ran your memory dump files.

That being said, there still isn't a whole bunch of useful information in the memory dump files.
FWIW - most times these sort of errors are due to malware - so I'd suggest running a couple of these free, online scans to rule that out: Malware

Hey people!

I am almost sure that this is not the right place for that, but after to stay over the subject for two FULL days I am frustrated for not manage to find a straight answer to my needs.

I am a song writer and I would like to protect my compositions by simply adding a trusted timestamp to my mp3 files and prove that I am the first owner of it.

There is a couple sites for music registration in my country (I am from Brasil) that are offering this service but they charge $2.50 per song. I consider it a ripoff once I could find some online services for 15% of this value and even for free. The problem is that either the services I found didn't show to be reliable or it is not easy/intuitive to use.

The two I found for free OriginStamp (Trusted Timestamping with Bitcoin - OriginStamp) and True Timestamp (True Time Stamp - Timestamping Authority) aren't actually file 'timestampers' – or else I didn't understand how they work. As far as I could see after you submit your file (in my case I tried either mp3 and zip ones) they just generate a hash code, probably based on the file header because they do it as soon you submit it. Therefore NOTHING is attached to the file, so it is not certificated. The only thing that's done is that a verification hash is generated and the timestamp is added to the hash and not to the file. Other problem that I noticed is that if I try to check the hash created by OriginStamp with the True Timestamp checking tool the time doesn't match; ... Read more

Hi All,

Been facing BSOD few times in a day.

Here's the scenario, previously everything was ok until remove my anti virus and some other files which i forgotten. and the BSOD appears, when i install a different AV, the problem still appears, when i view youtube video, BSOD again. when i watch video files, BSOD. when i run too many tasks - BSOD again.

mostly it says BAD POOL CALLER.

after all these BSOD, i tried update my graphic driver, and its still BSOD.

fed up, i formatted my drive and start everything from scratch.
so for fresh start in 5 days, i turn off windows update, never install AV and just run it by default and see how it goes. so far so good. no BSOD.

so next when i install AV, few days later it's BSOD again. so i removed it and do a Windows System Restore. so temporary no more AV. and i proceed to install
my canon printer driver and a software image viewer. it's BSOD again.

so i try downloading debugging software and open up the dump file and only says some error as shown below (i don't know what's that means)

also attached the dump file for you to review as instructed in forum.

Appreciate any of your kind advise.

directory on the external drive (e.g., J:\FileHistory\user\Data\....) I see that Windows is now adding a UTC timestamp on all the files, such as "familyvacation(2013_02_23 20_47_36 UTC).mov".
My question is whether there is any way to remove the automatic addition of this time stamp information to the file name?  I don't recall this being present on the initial FileHistory backup I initially did. 

Any and all help is of course greatly appreciated. 
All the best,

Hi, we are migrating a very large amount of data and we are using robocopy. Everything seems to work fine but now we find  thousands of files having the time stamp reset to 1-1-1980.
After many many tests we now sure the the /B switch is causing this issue (in our case).

But we MUST use the /B switch. Otherwise we will have big problems with access denied errors. to user data.
Now my question is how to solve this issue and keep using the /B switch.
The cmd line we are using is:
robocopy "%source%" "%target%" /MIR /NODCOPY /COPY:DAT /DCOPY:T /r:0 /w:0 /mt:32 /tee /v /fft /np /TIMFIX /xa:sh /xd $RECYCLE.BIN /log+:x:\mylogs\copylog.log
Please help!!!!

I have encountered a problem with Windows Firewall and would like to report it to Microsoft. It requires some specific circumstances to trigger, but I actually ran into this several times. It forces me to use a less secure network configuration (because
windows tcp timestamps leak system uptime and allow an observer to distinguish individual hosts behind nat).

Client: Windows 7 with Windows Firewall enabled, rfc1323 timestamps enabled, ECN enabled
Router: FreeBSD with firewall that performs timestamp randomization ("modulation")
Server: Windows XP(?) running IIS6, rfc1323 timestamps enabled, ECN disabled(?)

In this scenario, there is a 50% chance that the tcp connection to the server will stall after the initial handshake. That's because Windows Firewall will drop all packets on any connection to the server where the timestamp is above 2^31 (INT_MAX).
The packet exchange itself, as recorded on the router, may look like this:
C -> S [SYN, ECN, CWR] Seq=0 Win=8192 Len=0 TSval=743741 TSecr=0
S -> C [SYN, ACK] Seq=0 Ack=1 Win=64240 Len=0 TSval=0 TSecr=0
C -> S [ACK] Seq=1 Ack=1 Win=66560 Len=0 TSval=743744 TSecr=0
C -> S GET / HTTP/1.0
S -> C ... answer which gets acked ...
Or it may turn out like this:
C -> S [SYN, ECN, CWR] Seq=0 Win=8192 Len=0 TSval=2344120535 TSecr=0
S -> C [SYN, ACK] Seq=0 Ack=1 Win=64240 Len=0 TSval=0 TSecr=0
C -> S [ACK] Seq=1 Ack=1 Win=66560 Len=0 TSval=2344120537 TSecr=0
C -> S GET / HTTP/1.0

The BSOD happens randomly. I have verified my memory using memtest and it reports it as O.K. along with all my other hardware. I'm a bit baffled by the whole issue and have spent hours searching for a solution to no avail.

You're help is greatly appreciated.

A:Random BSOD Windows 7 x64 --- Unable to verify timestamp for ntoskrnl

Related to NETIO.SYS. That usually means the malware app. You have two, which is never a good idea.

I would remove them both and replace with MSE.

Kaspersky is a frequent cause of BSOD's. I would remove and replace it with Microsoft Security Essentials AT LEAST TO TEST.

I found programs that will let me specify exact date and time to batch convert timestamp of files, but my files come with many different dates and times and I only need to adjust them by a few minutes.

Does a program like this exist at all?

Hey 7-Forums!

I have my music library, a 20GB folder on my hard-drive, containing a few thousand mp3s.
I use iTunes to play them, and I've always sorted them (inside iTunes) using the "Date Modified" property.

As a result of this sorting order, say,
if I found out an old song had the wrong name, or simply missing a capital letter and
corrected this, the song would move up to the top of my iTunes library because it is now the "newest".

This bothered me, so I decided to change the "Date Modified" of all my mp3s back to the original date:
the same as the "Date Created" of the file, using ATTRIBUTE CHANGER 7.
Unfortunately, I did not pay attention to what I was doing with the Attribute Changer and instead of changing the "Date Modified", I accidentally reset the "Date Created" of all the files to now.

This means that all timestamps were reset and my organized library is now f*cked.


Does anyone know how to undo timestamp changes??

Hi there,

I'm looking for a way to copy a complete folder to another folder when a text file is newer through GPO.
I have the follwing:
1) When the sync.txt file on T:\folder\ is newer then the one on C:\folder\ it needs to completely replace the folder C:\folder\123\*.*  

2) When the folder 123 does not exists in C:\Folder it needs to be copied including the sync.txt file.

Does anyone have a script for this that i can put in a GPO?

I keep getting this "write conflict" error message after updating a table through vba. From doing some research it seems that the solution to my problem is to add a timestamp column to my table. I understand that it is not actually a time/date field and can't figure out how to add it. Any help would be much appreciated.

I am looking for some help on an access database. I am trying to create a form that will automate a time tracking for a task I need to perform daily. My needs are pretty straight forward.

1. I want a button that when clicked will enter the current date into a text box, but I also want the ability to type a date other than that into the same text box. I want the format to be MM/DD/YYYY.
2. I want a set of buttons (Start Time and End Time) that will do the same thing as above with a timestamp. Also, again the ability to type directly in the text field. I want the format to be HH:MM.

Is this something that is easily accomplished? I have some experience with code behind forms, but would appreciate any help you would offer.

I haven't been on windows 98 or 98SE alot so I was wondeing, If you put a Cd-writer (burner) in a computer with windows 98 or 98se (which I just did) why when ;you go to my computer and right click on the E dirve is there not a recording tab and other tabs like in windows xp, I know the answer will probably be------because your not using XP----------But I was wondering. The one I put in had NERO with it and I like NERO anyway however I would like to know for future purposes.

Why when you go to mycomputer and right click on the E drive (the burner) don't you have the recording tab and the rest like XP. I like doing it that way in XP where you can move all files or copy files and then go to the burner and say write these files to cd.

Does windows 98 or 98SE have this and I am just missing it or is a burning program like NERO or another the only way to use the burning in 98 or 98SE?

Thanks for the help

A:Solved: Windows 98 and/or 98SE-question about burning CDs, is there a record tab etc-Question

lol, you answered your own question, windows 95,98,98se,and ME don't support cd burning, except with 3rd party software. When you purchase any of the NT systems (ie: xp, NT 4, Server 2003, 2000 PRO etc...) all have the NT kernel which if you look during your install say " Windows (whatever version) is built on NT technology" and "You now have built in CD burning" soon and perhaps with the upcoming service pack 2, it will start coming with DVD burning capability.

I believe the only windows kernel out that currently supports cd burning is the NT one
