File or Folder Search Displays Files with Incorrect Dates


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Windows 2000 Datacenter Server
  • Microsoft Windows 2000 Advanced Server
  • Microsoft Windows 2000 Server
  • Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional


When you use the Search tool to find a file that is dated earlier than 1/1/1980 and you specify to search between two dates that fall before 1/1/1980, the search results display all the files that meet your search criteria, with the date ignored. This includes the files that have dates earlier than 1/1/1980.


The Search tool does not recognize dates before 1/1/1980 for date search criteria.


To work around this issue, use dates that occur after 1/1/1980 when specifying date search criteria in the Search tool.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.
