 ====== Understanding file timestamps ====== ====== Understanding file timestamps ======
  
- +The File Fabric does not store any files and it works with remote copies of data that it has indexed. It uses [[http://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Coordinated_Universal_Time|UTC]] as an independent time format ​to display information about files. This means that times for files are shown as UTC times and UTC is used to enable ​the File Fabric ​to understand whether a file needs to be updated or versioned.
-Storage Made Easy uses [[http://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Coordinated_Universal_Time|UTC]] as an independent time format. This means that times for files are shown as UTC times and UTC is used to enable ​SME to understand whether a file needs to be updated or versioned.+

- +Hovering over the time field in the File Fabric ​Web Browser shows 3 different times:\\ \\ **SME Modified ​(if SaaS) Storage Modified (if on-premises)**  ​- The last modified time for the file in UTC format\\ ​\\ **Local Desktop Time**- The local modified time for the file, converted to UTC format (for the browser this will be based on the browser locale settings)\\ \\ **Remote Cloud Time** ​- The modified timestamp that was received for a file on a meta-sync, converted to UTC, from a mapped storage provider.

-If files are uploaded from the web File Manager then timestamps are only preserved if   firefox ​and chrome browser are used. These are the only two browsers that support file time preservation in upload (this is the case with any Cloud Storage vendor).  \\ \\ To be clear It is not possible to obtain local file stamps from web uploads for Safari ​and Internet Explorer ​and the time the file is uploaded is used for the creation and modified time of these files.\\ +If files are uploaded from the web File Manager then timestamps are only preserved if Firefox, Edge, Internet Explorer v. 10+ ,and chrome browser are used.  \\ \\ To be clear It is [not yet possible](https://​developer.mozilla.org/​en-US/​docs/​Web/​API/​File/​lastModified#​Browser_compatibility) ​to obtain local file stamps from web uploads for Safari and the time the file is uploaded is used for the creation and modified time of these files.\\

 If files are uploaded over a SME CloudDav or CloudFTP protocol adaptor then timestamp preservation depends on the client tool used and whether it issues the command to change the file timestamp.\\ \\ If files are uploaded over a SME CloudDav or CloudFTP protocol adaptor then timestamp preservation depends on the client tool used and whether it issues the command to change the file timestamp.\\ \\
