Hi Guys,

I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong or if B|T has been 'tweaked' to avoid doing what I'm trying to do.

I'm trying to ascertain if the value of a file's MD5 sum changes when the 'Accessed' and 'Modified' dates change.

I know that you can change the 'Accessed' date by using 'touch', for example:

Code:
touch /root/Desktop/someFileName.txt
However, when I try this in B|T the 'Accessed' details remain the same.

I've checked the file permissions and they look ok, so I don't think it's that (I'm root anyway so that shouldn't be an issue). Google suggests that this should work, and I can't find anything similar here on the forums.

Any thoughts anybody? Am I going about this the wrong way?

Thanks.
