SpaceObServer



Question / Problem

I believe there is a problem with how Create Date is reported.SpaceObServer reports the same Create Date as my file 's file system create date (seen in Explorer) when it initially scans the file system. If the file is moved my Create Date does not change on my file system. However, when SpaceObServer scans the file system after the file move it will report the file as being Created when it is scanned and entered into the database. This does not match the Create date of the file on the file system.

Answer / Solution

When youmove a file on your hard disk, SpaceObServer will notice this file as newfiles. To show correct size growth in the SpaceObServer "History" wecannot use the reported creation date of the moved files, because in this casethe file will be reported twice in the SpaceObServer "History".
