Track Last Access Time

Last Access Time is an attribute of a file that gets updated when a file is accessed or selected. By default, the Last Access Time of a file is not updated on computers operating on Windows Vista 2007 or later.

OnePass uses the Last Access Time attribute to archive files based on their last accessed time. For more information, see File Access Time.
