The two files appear to have the same timestamp.  One is 04/07/2005 =
and the box backup timestamp is=20

This would be correct adjusting for time zones. The two file appear =
the same in excel they have the same filesize however diff still reports
them as begin different?

Very weird.

Thank you

Next thing to check is the timestamp on the files. If the clocks are =20
wrong on the clients this can give you timestamps in the past or the =20
future, which messes up the new file detection.
