    All folders and files shows same date of creation in Mountain Lion

    Why this should happen? Actually facing this problem after moving to Mountain Lion. Any files or folders I check the creation date will be the same and it is really difficult for me to make out which file to be selected based on the creation date now. Any workaround to be followed?

    Re: All folders and files shows same date of creation in Mountain Lion

    Hi..................,

    Firstly check that date and time in mac is correctly set.
    Go to time setting and set the date and time manually.
    Do not set it as default. and also set the time zone.
    Now whenever you create the folder your current time is set there.
    If yet facing the problem then do the system restore.
    Also save your device from all virus.

    Thanks

    Hi

    There is a problem of your time setting in your mac.

    So first correct your time and date from the time setting menu.

    Set the time according to the place where you live or set the IST(Indian standard Time)

    There is sometimes the problem due to the viruses,So clean your mac from viruses through antivirus.

    If you can not do all these things then go to your setting and restore your data.

    Thank you...

    Hi Friend

    I want to tell you that you are facing this problem because you have not corrected the time setting in your mac.

    This type of problem occurs when the time and date are not correctly entered in the time setting menu.

    Set your time according to Indian Standard Time(IST).

    Or you can restore your device.

    Thank you.....

    this problem is occurring in the device due to the presence of the virus
    and that is the reason the folder shows the same date and the same time
    and for the solution you have to need a best version antivirus and apply and
    install it in the device and then the folders will shows the correct date and time.
    thank you.

    Probably this happens due to change in Mountain Lion.

    If you have not changed to this OS you would not have to face this problem now.

    If you have the backup in previous OS then you have restore the data in that OS.

    The restored data will show exect dates.

    There is no other way to use your folders and files by sorting them date wise creation.

    The only way is restoring to previous version/OS.
