Windows is able to tell me when (date & time) a file in the file system was created or altered. Is it possible to get such information in Mathematica, e.g., get the creation time of a text file after importing it?


1 Answer 1


See FileDate

FileDate["file","type"] gives information on the specified type of date associated with a file.

Global System Information will unveil more details.
