NetApp Snapshot directories appears to have wrong date

There might be mismatch of time stamp for snapshot at the NetApp controller end versus the time displayed in the windows explorer date modified.

Example:- The snaplist of my filerserver volume snapshots showing different time stamps 


Windows Explorer

As we see comparing the screenshots above that there is difference between the snapshot time and the time in the explorer i.e., date modified 

Actually we shouldn't compare the snapshot time stamp against the Data Modified but we should look for the option Date Accessed which is same as the snapshot time stamp

Right click on the any of the tab above ( Ex:- Name, Date Modified, Type, Size ) and select more 

Now look for the option Data Accessed and select and ok

Now compare the time stamp from snapshot and the date access, will exactly the same
