I have noticed that about 27 folders on one of my drives are listed as "Last Modified" on 5/01/2010 at 1.14pm.

Now these are folders that all the contents of show a Date Modified of the original dates I last accessed them - e.g 30 August 2009.

Anyone have any idea on why this would happen??

If you go into the "Terminal" (in Applications - Utilities)

Then type
"ls -al" then drag the folder into the terminal window, then hit return.

Do any of the other items (like the .DS_Store file) have that date modified of the 5/1/2010?

All I get is this;

-bash: is-al/Volumes/Elwood/Up TS XVID - STG: No such file or directory

OK - after typing "ls -al", hit the spacebar, then drag the folder into the window.

OK - after typing "ls -al", hit the spacebar, then drag the folder into the window.

Is that;

L for lima, S for sierra - A for alpha, L for lima
or
I for India, S for sierra - A for alpha, L for lima

Before delving into the wonderful world of UNIX commands, I suggest you read a bit about them. Most commands have a man (manual) page. In terminal, type the following:

man ls

That's Mary Alpha November Lima Sierra. =)

To exit the man page, simply type "q." That's q for Quit!

So, the only thing that seemed to be 'modified' on 5 Jan 2010 was...
" drwxr-xr-x 101 tonyandkate tonyandkate 3434 5 Jan 13:14 "

What is that? and why would it have been modified??

That is the parent folder in which all those rar parts and such reside. The beginning "d" stands for "directory."
