Win Explorer DateTime stamps?

Some symptoms have made me think that perhaps Windows Explorer maintains Greenwich time for hard disk files,
and converts when displaying or writing to a flash drive.

My flash drive data/time stamps often are one hour different from copies on hard disks

I wonder about external hard disks & CD/DVD Files.

HI Gouverneur.

Does this explain what is happening? > http://ask-leo.com/w...ime_change.html
Ignore the bit about converting to NTFS, can cause many problems.

Also some differences can occur between a NTFS file system and FAT32 many times used on Flash Drives, but one hour difference its probably related with the Daylight Saving Time.
More info on this subject File Times (Windows) from Microsoft (includes CD's).
