|The terminology is confusing, and I don't think it is consistent,|
but the command dir /? shows all the switches that can be used
with dir, and to my surprise I see that there are three switches
for changing the date output:
/ta Last Access
/tw Last Written
Creation date appears to be what you want. "Last Written"
is the default, and using /tc I'm getting earlier dates.
