I've encountered a problem with a single file where I cannot retrieve it's Date-time. So far my code has worked well for over 30 files, but this one is a mystery I cannot debug myself due to insufficient Au3 knowledge.

In line 11 "_Date_Time_FileTimeToArray" is called and for this particular file it sets the @error to 10. I don't know what that error code means, but it's not set by the _Date functions themselves I think.

Overall, it could be a problem caused by any of the functions below, how can I properly debug this? / Does anybody know a what's causing this?

_WinAPI_CreateFile() / _Date_Time_GetFileTime() / _Date_Time_FileTimeToArray()

Func _SetFileTimes($sFilePath)
    Local $monthNumber[13] = ["", "January", "February", "March", "April", "May", "Juny", "July", "August", "September", "October", "November", "December"]
    Local $dayNumber[7] = ["Sunday", "Monday", "Tuesday", "Wednesday", "Thursday", "Friday", "Saturday"]
    
    Local $fHandle = _WinAPI_CreateFile($sFilePath, 2, 2) ; read-only
    ; may NOT return a valid date for some reason! TODO
    Local $fTagFILETIME = _Date_Time_GetFileTime($fHandle)
    _WinAPI_CloseHandle($fHandle)
    
    ; This will return an empty array if theres no valid date
    $fModTime = _Date_Time_FileTimeToArray($fTagFILETIME[2]) ; last Modified
    if @error <> 10 then
        Local $year = $fModTime[2]
        Local $month = $fModTime[0]
        Local $day = $fModTime[1]
        Local $hour = $fModTime[3]
        Local $min = $fModTime[4]
        Local $sec = $fModTime[5]
        Local $ms = $fModTime[6]
        Local $weekday = $fModTime[7]
        
        Global $prettyTimestamp = StringFormat("%s, %s %d, %04d %02d:%02d:%02d", $dayNumber[$weekday], $monthNumber[$month], $day, $year, $hour, $min, $sec)
        Global $uploadDate = StringFormat("%04d-%02d-%02d", $year, $month, $day)
        
        $fModTime = _Date_Time_FileTimeToArray(_Date_Time_FileTimeToLocalFileTime($fTagFILETIME[2])) ; last Modified
        Local $year = $fModTime[2]
        Local $month = $fModTime[0]
        Local $day = $fModTime[1]
        Local $hour = $fModTime[3]
        Local $min = $fModTime[4]
        Local $sec = $fModTime[5]
        Local $ms = $fModTime[6]
        Local $weekday = $fModTime[7]
        
        ; GetUnixTime accounts for Local time, hence feed it local time
        Global $unixTimestamp = _GetUnixTime($year &"/"& $month &"/"& $day &" "& $hour&":"& $min &":"& $sec)
    else
        Global $prettyTimestamp = "N/A"
        Global $uploadDate = ""
        Global $unixTimestamp = "N/A"
    endif
    
    
endfunc

 

_GetUnixTime returned the year 1601 start date, showing that $fModTime is probably equal 0. (But Why?)

The file reports these dates in Explorer, it's on local NTFS drive:

Try FileGetTime.

Other than that, the file is in use by some program that locks it or something, or is in read mode.

Dont see other options. Maybe a bug.

Thanks guys for the answers, took me too long to notice because I was supposed to be notified by email.

I was going to test VIP's code to debug, but the problem has somehow resolved itself. The exact same code of mine now returns the correct date and parses it without problems... A very strange edge-case. I don't think it was a lock problem like careca said, because these files shouldn't have been accessed by any programs and my tool opened them in read-mode anyway (to fetch the date).

In any way, I developed the code above in one go without reboots, maybe that fixed it. Windows 7 SP1 64-bit, NTFS. /thread

Solved the mystery:

As careca said, THE FILE WAS LOCKED. Although I opened the file in READ-ONLY in my code and the file was also opened READ-ONLY by MediaPlayerClassic -  apparently it was enough for Windows to deny file access to my AutoIt script... Damn!

I also found out why:

The _WinAPI_CreateFile() doc states: _WinAPI_CreateFile ( $sFileName, $iCreation [, $iAccess = 4 [, $iShare = 0 [, $iAttributes = 0 [, $tSecurity = 0]]]] )

Local $fHandle = _WinAPI_CreateFile($sFilePath, 2, 2) ; read-only

Do you see it? Although I opened the file as read-only, the DEFAULT $iShare access in Au3 is set to NOT SHARE (==0).

Quote
$iShare [optional] Sharing mode of an object:
    1 - Delete
    2 - Read
    4 - Write

So if you open the file in really read-only, to get it's metadata, you want to allow ANY kind of access. Be it another read-only, write or delete:

Local $fHandle = _WinAPI_CreateFile($sFilePath, 2, 2, 7) ; read-only and share any

Now the file can be opened by my media player and I can retrieve its metadata in background! I didn't know a read-only access had to be allowed in the API call, I just assumed it by default.

      i made this today because i had a big file that i couldn't really open. i split it into 1000 chunks to make processing and stuff easier. i've also used it to split files to just under 25MB segments so i can attach and mail big files over gmail which is silly but it worked

      I like and have been using TeraCopy, a third party program, for many years. Mostly it is a great program, but it does have some issues. On Windows XP for instance, Thumbs.db files could often hold up a copy or move process until the user manually responded to the error prompt. Some other issues I discuss below.
      PLEASE NOTE - I am not related to or affiliated in any way with the 3rd party TeraCopy program developers.
      ALSO NOTE - I myself have only tested TeraCopy Cure at this point, on Windows 7 (32 bit), and only with the free version of TeraCopy 2.27.
      This program, TeraCopy Cure, is related to another one of my TeraCopy assistant programs, TeraCopy Timer, but aims at being simpler and quicker to use ... if lacking its more advanced features.
      TeraCopy Cure is a frontend for TeraCopy and sets out to make up for its flaws and limitations.
      One of those flaws is queuing order, and the limitation relates to a same destination issue.
      You would think that queue order would be the same as add order, but that is not the case, and if you are doing a mix of COPY and MOVE then the COPY process could easily fail. It could fail with some source items, even if the  COPY process has already started before the same source MOVE process begins ... especially if the destination folder is on the source drive ... only the currently copying file is locked to that process.
      If you drag and drop another source for a same destination as an existing or impending COPY or MOVE process, then usually TeraCopy nicely adds it for you to that existing job. However, you might wish to avoid that, or it might occur during the testing phase of that active process, and then not be properly processed etc. But you are not given a choice and it just gets added.
       
           
      HOW TO USE
      See the right-click menu of the 'Batch List' (lowest field) and the right-click menu of the Tree field, for some useful options.
      (1) If desired, enable 'Auto Start'. NOTE - Even if enabled, this can be bypassed.
      (2) Set the destination folder, either by browsing on the tree or by dragging a folder to the Destination input field or label. Right-clicking on a folder in Explorer will also work, if enabled. The destination folder path will also show in the Tree if that right-click option is enabled.
      (3) Then drag & drop source file or folder onto one of three five areas - Folder (Drive) Tree field, or COPY or MOVE buttons ... this now also includes the source input and label.
      NOTE - If the Folder (Drive) Tree field is used, then you will additionally need to click either the COPY or MOVE button, to have that job added to the Batch List ... but this avoids 'Auto Start' if it is enabled. Drag & dropping to the buttons instead, saves on clicking, but starts the first job etc immediately if 'Auto Start' is enabled.
      (4) If needed and ready, click the START button to run the first job and those that follow.
      More information is included in program and in the NOTES etc sections below.
         
      WARNING - Depending on the amount of content on your destination drive, and folder level depth, and the speed of your PC, display of the full path in the Folder (Drive) Tree can take a while to show ... if you have that (right-click) option enabled ... it isn't by default. I found this feature quite tricky to get right, and I'm still not 100% sure it is now full-proof.

      the paramatrs of this function
      is firstdate and lastedate
      the two params is as the following
      year/month/day hours:minuts:seconds
      here is the function
       
      #include <date.au3> func _dateBetween($s_firstDate, $s_lastDate = default) if not (StringRegExp($s_firstDate, "((\d{4})\/(\d{2})\/(\d{2})\s(\d{2})\:(\d{2})\:(\d{2}))", 0) = 1) then Return SetError(1, 0, 0) if $s_lastDate = default then $s_lastDate = @year & "/" & @mon & "/" & @mday & " " & @hour & ":" & @min & ":" & @sec if not (StringRegExp($s_lastDate, "((\d{4})\/(\d{2})\/(\d{2})\s(\d{2})\:(\d{2})\:(\d{2}))", 0) = 1) then Return SetError(2, 0, 0) local $a_FirstSplitDate = StringSplit(StringRegExpReplace($s_firstDate, "((.*)\s(.*))", "$2"), "/", 2) local $a_FirstSplitTime = StringSplit(StringRegExpReplace($s_firstDate, "((.*)\s(.*))", "$3"), ":", 2) local $a_lastSplitDate = StringSplit(StringRegExpReplace($s_lastDate, "((.*)\s(.*))", "$2"), "/", 2) local $a_LastSplitTime = StringSplit(StringRegExpReplace($s_lastDate, "((.*)\s(.*))", "$3"), ":", 2) local $i_firstDateValue = _DateToDayValue($a_FirstSplitDate[0], $a_FirstSplitDate[1], $a_FirstSplitDate[2]) local $i_LastDateValue = _DateToDayValue($a_LastSplitDate[0], $a_LastSplitDate[1], $a_LastSplitDate[2]) if $i_firstDateValue > $i_LastDateValue then Return SetError(3, 0, 0) local $i_totalDays = $i_LastDateValue-$i_firstDateValue if not ($i_totalDays = 0) then if $a_FirstSplitTime[0] <= $a_lastSplitTime[0] then $i_totalDays += 1 $a_lastSplitTime[0] -= $a_FirstSplitTime[0] elseIf $a_FirstSplitTime[0] > $a_lastSplitTime[0] then if $i_totalDays > 0 then $i_totalDays -= 1 $a_FirstSplitTime[0] -= $a_lastSplitTime[0] endIf endIf endIf local $i_totalYears = 0 if $i_totalDays >= 365 then While $i_totalDays >= 365 $i_totalYears += 1 $i_totalDays -= 365 Wend endIf local $i_TotalMonths = 0 if $i_totalDays >= 30 then While $i_totalDays >= 30 $i_totalMonths += 1 $i_totalDays -= 30 Wend endIf local $i_totalWeeks = 0 if $i_totalDays >= 7 then While $i_totalDays >= 7 $i_totalWeeks += 1 $i_totalDays -= 7 Wend endIf $i_totalSeconds = ((($a_FirstSplitTime[0]*60)*60)+($a_FirstSplitTime[1]*60)+($a_FirstSplitTime[2]))-((($a_lastSplitTime[0]*60)*60)+($a_lastSplitTime[1]*60)+($a_LastSplitTime[2])) local $minus = "" if $i_totalSeconds < 0 then $minus = "-" $i_totalSeconds = StringReplace($i_totalSeconds, "-", "") endIf local $i_totalHours = 0 if $i_totalSeconds >= 3600 then While $i_totalSeconds >= 3600 $i_totalHours += 1 $i_totalSeconds -= 3600 Wend endIf local $i_totalminuts = 0 if $i_totalSeconds >= 60 then While $i_totalSeconds >= 60 $i_totalminuts += 1 $i_totalSeconds -= 60 Wend endIf local $a_arrayReturn[7] $a_arrayReturn[0] = $i_totalYears $a_arrayReturn[1] = $i_totalMonths $a_arrayReturn[2] = $i_totalWeeks $a_arrayReturn[3] = $i_totalDays $a_arrayReturn[4] = $minus & $i_totalHours $a_arrayReturn[5] = $minus & $i_totalminuts $a_arrayReturn[6] = $minus & $i_totalSeconds return $a_arrayReturn endFunc  
      here is an example
       
       
      $a_calc = _dateBetween("2015/02/12 23:00:05", "2030/02/12 23:25:50") msgBox(64, "result", StringFormat("the difference is : %i years and %i months and %i weeks and %i days and %i hours and %i minuts and %i seconds", $a_calc[0], $a_calc[1], $a_calc[2], $a_calc[3], $a_calc[4], $a_calc[5], $a_calc[6]))  
      am waiting for your comments
      with my greetings
