This Vista can be quirky, can't it. I'm having trouble in Windows Explorer finding the date the file originated (when an image was taken; the exact date the file first appeared). I right click the upper tab, then go to more, and find a bunch of "Dates", which a can check but none of them give me the date the file actually originated. How do I solve this? What happens if I change a file's name (as I do with images and sound files). Can I keep an original date. Interestingly, Photoshop records the correct date of an image on Exif data, but what about Vista?
