R-Studio - a bug with time stamp comparison

Post by Peter » Thu Sep 07, 2017 4:28 pm

"Recover" files dialog, advanced options, "Files already exists" section.

Time comparison doesn't work correctly because the utility takes the existing file time stamp as local time (read from win api call), but the new file time stamp as GMT time (read from recovered FS metadata).
Thus, even if files are exactly the same, the skip mode would never work.

The local computer time zone need to be used to modify one of the time stamps.
