It is a Fact that the time and date don't change on an NTFS file system.

The fact that Puppy did not automatically create the pup001 file lead me to believe that Puppy is finding the pup001 file on an NTFS file system.

You are essentially saying: Linux can (by some process) access a file on an NTFS, mount it as a virtual filesystem, modify the contents, unmount it but leave unchanged the time and date attributes of the file it just modified.

What date and time does XP on NTFS show for pup001? For example: the date it had inside the .zip archive, the date it was unzipped to XP? Some other date?

That is exactly what I am saying.

The date of the file inside the zip file (April 11, 2005 - 5:50 AM).

As I said, this is the neat trick that allows puppy to write to the pup001 file without corrupting the NTFS.

Very interesting. Because modifying the date/time attributes is a write to the filesystem. That's sort of what we are wanting not to do on NTFS with Puppy.

That's the stamp it should have is the one in the .zip archive. Educational, thanks.
