    Why is Windows File Explorer displaying wrong timestamp for some files


    Please have a look at the screenshot. Windows File Explorer is displaying datetime stamp of 11/06/2020 6:33 pm, however if I right click on the file it displays a different Creation time. This has only happened to 4 files out of about 40. The rest of the files are showing the same date/time stamp on Windows File Explorer and when right clicked.

    Hi, some related discussion here:
    Is Windows showing the wrong date for files in Explorer?

    The data shown in your 2nd example is earlier than 'Date Created' but bear in mind that the latter is:

    Date Created: The date and time when the current instance of the file was created.

    - so the file itself may have been originally created before that.

    That may be significant, as you can see from this useful explanation:

    What is the "Date" column in Windows 7 explorer? It matches no date column from Windows XP explorer - Super User
