Default Re: Time and Date not right

Are your times and dates correct for files saved with other applications?

Does the time and date display correctly in the Finder menu bar?

You might try resetting it within the System Preferences; switch to a different time zone, exit, and then go back and reset it to the correct time zone.

If you're experiencing time and date issues, you may need to zap the PRAM. Some of the PRAM data is dependent on the internal battery, which will wear out over time. If your Mac has some years on it, you should probably test the battery and change it if it appears low. Typically, the battery is a 3.6 V, small format and readily available.

cheers, Dave
