How can I manipulate the date shown on a cmd window when dir is called?
I do not understand on what parameter windows is calculating this date.
Most time the date 1980 is shown what is a little bit suspect.

Thanks

Hello,

I've checked it and found that the problem exists only for the root directory which doesn't have the directories "." and ".." at all. We have corrected it in the next build.
For other directories times for "." and ".." are always set to the same values as the directory (that is parent for them) has. Or do you have the problem and for such directories?

I mean that the root directory has them now but it mustn't.

Hi,

I have the problem only on the root dir.
But only for my knowledge by with callbacks do you request the information in other cases. GetFileInfo?

Thanks

OnGetFileInfo is never called for the directories "." and "..". And moreover in the latest version it doesn't matter whether you specify such directories during directory enumeration or not. It is always corrected by the driver.

One of our costumers send me the screenshot attached last week. And I was not able to reconstruct or reproduce the problem on my side.
What I know is that I: was mounted by the eldos driver, abd he uses a fully patched Windows 2003 Server System.

Thanks
