In prior versions of Windows I used to be able to sort my folders by date modified. If any files in those folders where added, removed, changed etc... the folder date would be updated. However, in Windows 8 this doesn't seem to be the case for me. Any suggestions?
Hm, this is very strange, I tried the following:
- Created a parent folder called "TEST".
- Created a child folder called "A" within it and a minute later created a second child folder called "B". Therefore "B" has a newer date modified date than "A" within our "TEST" folder.
- Created a new file in "A". Therefore "A" should have a newer date modified date than "B", but it hasn't updated.
Please note that this is the case on my external hard drive, which is formatted to EXFAT. I tried exactly the same thing on my OS drive and it updates just fine. What could be the issue?
