When you are uploading assets to Canto, you may notice that the Date Created field may show the date that the file was uploaded instead of when the file was first created. This means that the file itself does not have a Date Created metadata associated with it. The file will naturally fill the Date Created with the date in which the file is uploaded to.
For example, if the file was first uploaded to your computer on January 1st, 2000, the file will reflect that date. If the file is uploaded to Canto today, it will reflect today's date.
The time may reflect a time different from your timezone. The time is actually reflecting the time in UTC which is the default setting we have for our servers.
