    I have an audio file (Windows Media file) and need to determine the creation date. There is a date that shows when I check the file's 'properties' but the date is not correct. Is there software that can determine the true creation date of a file?

    data depends of used OS.
    windows save created, modified, access
    copying means created=modified=access, the old is gone.

    If it's wma file you can check it's metadata.

    If it's not there and also not in general section (file system level) I doubt that you can find it anywhere else.

    Thanks for the info. I did not know Karen Kenworthy's old site was still up and being maintained. It looks nice, actually pretty refreshing to see these sites that have been around for a long time. Man I am going to have to try Karen's Replicator again. It was such a smooth running program on XP.

    I tried this one but it didn't recognize the file type which is a .WMA file. But thanks as this looks like useful software for some other purposes.
