Acrobat Pro DC seems to update the Windows "created" and "modified" dates to the current day and time even when I just open the PDF file for viewing, and did nothing to change or save the file! The metadata inside of the PDF file is still unchanged and intact, but that is not good enough. I want to be able to use Windows File Explorer to sort files based on correct creatin and modification dates.
In my "Preferences" in Acrobat, I have unchecked "Automatically save document changes to temporary file every: 5 minutes", so it should not be auto-saving. Is there some other preference I should "turn off" to stop Acrobat from changing Windows mod/create dates?
I'm using Acrobat Pro DC Version 2022.001.20117 on Windows 11. Thanks for any suggestions!
Thanks Amal. I was already completely up to date on Windows11, so that wasn't the issue. However, you got me thinking about whether this behavior was really the fault of Acrobat, and the answer is NO, it isn't! The mod/create dates don't change when using Acrobat if the file is stored on my local disk, or in a Dropbox folder, or in a OneDrive folder, but the dates do change whenever I access a PDF stored in a Google Drive folder! By the way, the same issue happens with viewing an Excel file using MS Excel, so the problem seems to be with Google Drive, not with Acrobat or Excel. I'll keep investigating in that direction.
