    Hello everyone,

    For a whatsapp photo received from another contact in my samsung galaxy note 8, why is the date created later than date modified? (please see the picture attached)

    Did someone send it to you from a different time zone?

    Or the clocks on the two phones are 3 or 4 minutes off.

    No, these aren't random files I am not posting this for shits and giggles so obviously there is a practical reason why because they are family photos taken on a vacation. Of course other posts didn't receive a reply so thats why im posting AGAIN. If you can take a look yourself you can clearly see with your eyes. Smdh.


    Yes, from halfway across the world from Toronto, ON, CAN + 10 hours. The picture was sent from another user to me, so is that the reason why the time is off because the sender's phone might be a few minutes off? Have you tested this in an experiment betwene 2 phones? It could be plausable now that you mention it... let me see if I can use my two phones as a test

    [Edit] - it didn't work I set my s8 time forwards by 5 minutes and my note 8 time forwards by 10-15 minutes sill the date created and date modified remain the same. From reading other articles on google, it seems like the date created is only changed/updated when it's being moved or copied. So im wondering how can this photo be moved or relocated on my note 8 when it was directly sent from a user on whatsapp and why does the date created need to be changed....

    Don't you mean an earlier date though, since you are on windows, can't you just click on it and see it? Making things really simple for you.

    what? the date created has time of 5:17 PM whereas date modified has time of 5:15 PM so I do mean that the date created is created later in time...

    The screen you have posted is from windows.
    I am looking at the full image. Here is an example of one of my images:

    That is by default.

    Windoze is showing incorrect information about the file? Just a guess, as I don't use that myself.

    I also am using windows 10 and I imported the photo using

    The image titled "IMG-20191103-WA0003" on note 8 before being imported using the above method:

    Are you only worried about the time frame, when I always use USB with my Moto with my Win 10,it always displays different time,I was showing you that in the example.

    I am not using USB, I am using my desktop PC with win 10 and my samsung galaxy note 8. In the above, problem, yes for that particular picture only the time is affected but there are other pictures for which the date created AND time are later than date modified. I am trying to understand why whatsap did that and what caused it to happen....

    I still haven't received a reply from that forum. Does anyone have any idea about this ? Also, i narrowed down the search results and found out that there are several images (approx 20-30 images) within my s8 or note 8 that ALL have the same date created which also appear to be after the date modified. The only time which I know of when the date created is later in time and have the same date and time is when those pictures are moved or copied to/from somewhere else ?? Any possible suggestions for this?
