Windows 2003 Server - File Modified/Access Dates keep changing

By ekeller ·
I hope someone has bumped into this...

We have some Windows 2003 servers, using Commvault for Backup and Symantec for Anti-Virus... I'm trying to use some HSM for migrating old files to secondary storage... Simple enough, right?

Well here's the problem... Some program is accessing my files (I suspect SAV) and changing the ACCESSED and MODIFIED times of the files. So basically if I run an HSM job to migrate some old files, based upon a criterion of "NOT MODIFIED OR ACCESSED for over 2 years" it finds nothing because all the dates are from, say two weeks ago.

The odd thing is that it's not the whole folder, it's some here and some there... but all the files in any given folder will be set to the same time... And it's not happening every day either... Ugh!

I've poked around on the net, trying to google this one, but I keep coming up empty handed.

Any clues?
