Question / Problem

What is the difference between last change date and last access date?

Answer / Solution

The last change date is the date on which the file has been written the last time, for example if a file is saved or if the content of a folder is altered. The last access date is updated even if the actual written content is identical to the previous one.

The last access date shows when the file was last opened for reading.
