Noticed this issue after the last two daylight savings time changes. The first time Replicator runs after the daylight savings time change, it will copy all files as if all files have a changed time stamp. Only happens twice a year but thought I'd bring it to your attention.

If you are writing a 32-bit application to list all the files in a directory and the application may be run on a 64-bit computer, you should call the Wow64DisableWow64FsRedirectionfunction before calling FindFirstFile and call Wow64RevertWow64FsRedirection after the last call to FindNextFile.
