Hello.

I suggest that the default setting for NewTimeZoneMethod be 0, even on Windows 7/8 systems.

The reason is: it messes with those of us who use TC for backups.
(I know it certainly messed with me !)

I suppose the relevant question is: are there more users interested in consistency with Windows Explorer than users interested in consistency with prior versions of TC ?

Me anyway, I'm a convinced TC user, so I consistently ignore Explorer, and whatever change Microsoft may mess it up with.

Am I an isolated case here ?

Now, my argument may be silly from a technical point of view... I wouldn't know. Don't beat me too hard if my argument is silly ;-). Just explain it to me.

I disagree. NewTimeZoneMethod=0 is ideal when you use FAT32 - then the timestamps on FAT32 drives do not change when switching from/to daylight saving time. NewTimeZoneMethod=1 is ideal for NTFS - then timestamps on NTFS drives doesn't change. Since all new Windows computers now come with NTFS, it makes sense to use NewTimeZoneMethod=1, which the Explorer uses too.

Do you make your backups more often than one per hour? If not, why does +1 hour difference matters for old backup within the same computer?
