Displaying file times to the second

Posted: 10-12-2008, 10:07 PM
I'd like to compare the time stamps of two files that were created a
few seconds apart. Unfortunately, the Windows Explorer only shows the
time to the nearest minute. And the "properties" view is even worse --
it shows "2 hours ago" (it was actually 78 minutes ago). The DIR
command also gives time only to the minute. Is there any way to get
the file times to the second? The files were created on a FAT memory
card, so the times should have 2-second precision.

XYplorer can do that. On NTFS XYplorer can even show the milliseconds in
file times.

Thanks, I'll check it out.

Strangely enough, the "Properties" dialog now shows the times to the
second for some mysterious reason. Maybe it only does that "2 hours
ago" nonsense until the files reach a certain age.

Can't help with this mystery, but I can show you how a file list showing
msecs does look. Lots of numbers...:
