Regarding File timing

Sara
Hi Guru,

Is possible to change the created time of the file?

If no, could you please explain me why?

Regards,
Sara

No, its not possible to change the file creation date. However, the file modification time can be changed using the touch command. By the way, in some unix flavors, we cannot even find the file creation date.

Regarding the question, Why it cannot be changed?  Ans: How would it help us? If it is changed, then how will one know the exact creation date.
