    Modified dated earlier than created date

    Several files Properties show that the Modified date is earlier than the created date, how's that?

    This "could" possibly happen in a scenario like so:

    Example: Suppose that you download a file from the internet. It is possible that the "Date Created" detail will state the exact date and time of when you downloaded the file, yet the "Date Modified" detail will state when the file has been last modified. Let's say that the file was modified by the person who uploaded that file about a week ago before they uploaded it.

    So this would become of the file's details:

    Date Created: 10/11/2019
    Date Modified: 10/4/2019

    (so the Date Created is the date the file has been created on your computer).

    This is what I've noticed in the past and still remember this small scenario.
