Are you saying that even after you run RM-to-Go it still says the files have different timestamps? If so, that is one of the symptoms that results from the RM-to-Go bug. So please describe your problem in a little more detail.
If on the other hand, you have simply opened RM5 to look around without changing anything, then Tom's analysis would apply to your problem rather than a bug in RM-to-Go.

Hi, many thanks for your replies.
Sorry for delay in response.
The data change was quite large, so significant that I was suprised no change appeared.
I checked to see what the data size was on each file. I noticed no difference but did notice that my computer is NTFS and my 16g Flash drive was FAT.
I decided to reformat to NTFS. It would not do it so I had to reformat in FAT.
I reinstalled RMTgo.
I transfered data to RMTgo.
I did more genealogy, again a large amount of data.
Transferred to RMTgo.
Did some more genealogy involving data but not a large amount.
Transferred to RMTgo. This time it was reporting same dates but...! RMTgo was larger than Computer.
I checked program using RMTgo then RM and could see no difference.
I allowed the RMTgo to transfer it;s file to computer.
Did a check and my RM appeared ok with no difference.
I have not used it since, but I will respond when I do (today).
Further to this the problem has not occured before. I normally only get a size diffence when I have worked on RMTgo not Computer which I would expect.
Many thanks once again,
