How to set the modifcation date of a file

with the command FS_SetFileTime() I can set the creation date of a file in a FAT file system.
But when I make changes with embOS in the file later on, how can I modify or set the modification date appropriately?
Best regards.

Hello HaKo,

It is not required to explicitly call the FS_SetFileTime() function to set the creation/modification time of a file.
All you have to do is to make sure that the FS_X_GetTimeDate() function returns the actual time and date.
You can find more information in the section " FS_X_GetTimeDate()" of emFile manual.

Best Regards,
