"The major difference is in the resolution time, which can vary from
10 milliseconds for 'create time' on FAT-formatted files to one hour
for 'access time' on NTFS-formatted files."
This is an amazingly awkward and uninformative statement. What about
the "access time" on FAT or the "create time" on NTFS, or the "change
time" on either? In any case, the one hour seems kind of
preposterous. Even the screen shots in that very article strongly
suggest that the access time has resolution no worse than one second.
I think the resolution on all three times are the same for any given
filesystem. I could be wrong, but it just seems like a ridiculous
idea to make some timestamps have finer resolution than others.
