On our SharePoint site the modification date of files gets updated when it should not, when no changes to a file have been made.
I have found two ways to reproduce this error:
- A document is opened for read only access. When the document is closed, then the modification date in the library gets updated.
- When we open the document library in Explorer, every file we click (just single click, highlighting the file) the modification date gets updated too.
I stopped all services on the client machine, to avoid the file being indexed or virus scanned, but it still happens.
What could cause this?
