Tsk, Simon, what happened to 'never throw data away'??!
I'm trying to stave off entropy as long as possible.
Er, but seriously... because I use file creation dates and times, have done for ages, have become used to being able to rely on them. It could be anything from 'when did I download that file' to 'when did I take that photo' to wanting to know which is the earlier instance of a file... as opposed to the instance that was copied to the disc first, which probably bears no relation.
Also some programs use these dates and rely on them.
Maybe I could undo my reliance, but it'd take some adjustment and basically be a PITA.
In fact I'm quite surprised you ask... surely you use file dates / times?? Are you winding me up? :)
