Hey there

I have some files on a USB which are showing dates created/modified well after the date they were created ie - created in 2015 but say created in 2018.

Anyone know how or why this might happen?

all I can think is the computer they were copied on etc had the incorrect date?

Hi, bjwaus82, and welcome to TSG

Were files copied, rather than moved, from one storage device to another one in 2018? I believe that at least some versions of Windows consider a copied file as a new file. This new will show a creation date that matches the date the files were copied.

EDIT: This is more of an operating system issue than a multi-media issue. Please let us know what operating system is running on the computer so that this thread can be moved to the correct forum.
