VSS File Date on Get Latest
VSS has many settings, most of which most of us leave set at the default.
One of the few settings I think should be changed is the local file date. Why?
The default setting is Current. This means that when you do a get latest the Date Modified shown in windows explorer for the file will be the current time. Knowing the time that you last got the latest version isn’t very useful information, it is much more useful to know when the file was actually last changed.
So to ensure you get that info just change the setting shown below to Modification and from now on when you do a get latest it will always be the date the file was last modified.
Much more useful 🙂
Making the Change
Open VSS and go to ->Tools-> Options
Change ‘Set Date/time on local files’ from Current to Modification:-
