JSI Tip 1692. When you use Windows NT Explorer to Find / Files or Folders By Date Modified, the search may not work?

The search engine uses the MS-DOS date and time format. This is limited to 1/1/1980 through 12/31/2079.

Dates earlier than 1980 are treated as 2000-2079.

Dates later than 2079 are treated ad 1980-1999.

Microsoft is aware of the limitation.
