  • System Time 1 Hour Off

    OK,

    So, I just noticed something weird. I was editing some music files using a program called GoldWave and I noticed it was saving there with a time stamp 1 hour ahead of my current time. Unsure if it was an application thing, I opened MS Word and saved a test document to the same folder ... which saved at the correct time but, as I was closing it I noticed that, although it did, the temporary file word creates whilst ma document is open, also had the 1-hour advanced time. To my mind this confirms that it is somehow a Windows system thing rather than application.

    Any idea why this might be?

    Thx

    Is your system time correct?

      And is the time ZONE correct, particularly the DST option?

        OK,

        So, I've figured out the problem. It turns out I was saving to a network share, a NAS, that [guess what] had it's own time settings. It was an hour ahead and resetting it to the same as the PC resolved the issue.

        As such, I have to apologise ... my only excuse is that it was 4 am and, unable to sleep, I'd gotten up so I was tired.

        Sorry

          No apologies needed - well done for sorting it out (and have a well deserved on me)
