  1. This foolishness also affects the latest Windows version 6.5 (I have 6.5.336). I find it hard to believe that Win XP Pro doesn't store the modification dates in UTC. For what it's worth, I have NTFS system disks and a FAT32 firewire external backup disk. If Windows doesn't get the daylight savings change right, one would think it would affect both disks the same. A more likely conjecture is that Retrospect is comparing a Journal file to the date on disk. Perhaps the Journal file is not in UTC. I haven't actually written a test program for fstat on Windows... Retrospect's failure here would be less of an issue if it weren't so slow to do backups. It seems to eat up several orders of magnitude from the speed of my external disk for large file copies.
