INFO: Time Stamps Under the FAT File System
The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Win32 Application Programming Interface (API), used with:
- the operating system: Microsoft Windows NT, versions 3.1, 3.5, 3.51, 4.0
- the operating system: Microsoft Windows 2000
Windows NT considers the time stamp on a file stored on a FAT (file allocation table) partition to be standard time if the current time is standard time, and daylight time if the current time is daylight time, regardless of what time of year the file was originally time stamped.
This is not an issue under NTFS, which consistently implements Universal Coordinated Time.
