Get and Set File Last Write Time

The SetLastWriteTime and GetLastWriteTime methods are used to set and get the last write date and time of the specified file. The following code snippet sets and gets the last write date and time of a file.

Imports System.IO

Module Module1

    Sub Main()

        ' Get and set file last write time

        Dim fileName As String = "c:\temp\Mahesh.txt"

        File.SetLastWriteTime(fileName, DateTime.Now)

        Dim dt As DateTime = File.GetLastWriteTime(fileName)

        Console.WriteLine("File last write time: {0}", dt.ToString())

        Console.ReadLine()

    End Sub

End Module

Output:
