    I inadvertently resaved an old file and want to restore it to it's original
    date.

    I recall there was an old DOS utility to do that but is there an easy way to
    do that in WIN XP-- other by changing the system date and resaving it again?

    There's a port of the Unix utility "touch" to cygwin and perhaps a
    standalone win32 version as well.
