shutil.copy time stamp errors on win XP

I'm working on various backup scripts, using filecmp and shutil.

When I run a script to copy files to a mapped network drive, shutil
creates a backup file with a date of 2002 or so.

If I use shutil.copy2 it copies the dates of the original files, but
creates folders with similary old dates and times.

Anybody ever seen that before? My system clock is fine. I don't know
what else to try.

Thanks for any help.

Warning : Win-XP manage many date/time for files : creation, last access,
last modification, year (?), day of photo
And, this can to change, depending on format of disk (NTFS, FAT, etc.)
and/or type of files (Jpeg, exe, etc.)

On a LAN, the date/time can also to depend of the date/time and the time
zone from the server (and, perhaps, from the domain).



*sorry for my bad english*

Thank you! I went into the set up of my network storage device and
found the time settings all wrong. Fixed it.

Sorry for the trouble.
