    Strange creation date on files

    I have a client running Unity 5.1 with several Mac 10.5.5 clients.  A couple of clients had trouble with the Attic not saving copies at the right interval.  In my investigation I noticed that the creation date on the attic files for that project all said Dec 31, 1903.  Obviously not possible.  They clients are set to sync with the Unity.  I checked the date and time on the Unity and client side and it was correct.  These file may have been migrated from an older Unity with OS9 clients.  The old Unity is still running and I checked the date and time there and it was correct.  Has anyone seen this issue?

    I'm not sure about the most recent macs, but on the older ones when the clock battery dies the CPU clock resets to that date on every restart.  I'm guessing this is what happened - and files that were created under this circumstance would have that date.

    meaning the files were copied over on a machine with a screwed up date/time kabobber.

     

    Is this really a problem,  is there something these files can't do that you need them to?

    One machine was having a problem with the attic not properly backing up bins which is how I discovered the creation date.  I just changed back up from 15 mins to 5 and it seems to have been fine since.

    yay!  

     

    Attic copies also don't happen if you double click a bin to LAUNCH media composer-  the bin opens before the project context actually-  kind of like time travel in the new star trek movie.
