In my simple program, it shows the last write times compare exactly
equal according to CompareFileTime. However, COPY /UF continues to
copy the file. In fact, when I force all three times to be exactly the
same, COPY /UF continues to copy the file.
I don't see how CompareFileTime can be used to do the /UF function of
"more than 2 seconds newer" directly. You must do some interesting
int main(int argc, char * argv)
HANDLE hFile1, hFile2;
FILETIME ftFileC1, ftFileA1, ftFileW1;
FILETIME ftFileC2, ftFileA2, ftFileW2;
hFile1 = CreateFile(argv, GENERIC_READ, 0, NULL, OPEN_EXISTING, 0, NULL);
if (hFile1 == INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE) abort();
hFile2 = CreateFile(argv, GENERIC_READ, 0, NULL, OPEN_EXISTING, 0, NULL);
if (hFile2 == INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE) abort();
if (!GetFileTime(hFile1, &ftFileC1, &ftFileA1, &ftFileW1)) abort();
if (!GetFileTime(hFile2, &ftFileC2, &ftFileA2, &ftFileW2)) abort();
printf("C=%d A=%d W=%d\n",
