The Badge shows a file was edited 420 years ago

The Badge shows a file was edited 420 years ago

Is anyone else having issues with Badge, randomly showing "<user> last edited this file 420 years ago".

 

it seems to affect both mac and windows users and appears to be random- in that we can't link it to a prticular folder/file or user.

Dropbox said they were investigating but have not come back with any explanation.

 

cheers

Marty

Hi @martychaos, thanks for posting today!

This is more of an issue that can occur with Windows, where a modification date of a file can be changed to the year 1601. 

Some research on this matter can be made after checking on the web regarding this date, and could possibly be a conflict with Windows/Unix systems on how they calculate time.

If the file is 'modified' on that date, then Dropbox would see it, and thus report it that way. It might be worth trying to edit the file quickly while on a Windows machine to see if this helps.

Keep me updated with any progress!
