Frequently asked question

Why does the last modified date for grid and info folders update when added to TOC or previewed in Catalog?

Last Published: April 25, 2020


The last modified date of the grid folder and its associated info folder are updated when the grid is added to ArcMap as a layer, or when displayed in ArcCatalog’s preview mode. The actual data file's dates inside the grid name and info folders remain unchanged. To view a grid’s correct last modified date, query the individual files inside the folder.
