I made a video for which I need to know the date that it was made. I clicked on the file icon then on Get Info and window with a bunch of information (I can't figure out how to copy it to here). Anyhow, the information I'm curious about is this ...

The Get Info window tells me the file was created on Dec. 28, 2015. Right underneath that it tells me the file was modified on Dec. 15, 2015. Two questions, please ...

1. Is it correct that the Date Created refers to the file, not the date the video was made?
2. How can something be modified BEFORE it was created?

Thanks
Bob

I'd take a screenshot of it. Also as for the dates, I suspect that maybe the 'Date Modified' is the date on which it was taken, and the 'Date Created' must be the day you transferred it to your computer. I couldn't say for sure, but that's my best guess.
