Hello,

We are in the process of cleaning up more than 20 years of "stuff" that has been left behind.

I have found quite a few datasets that show no create data and no last referenced date in the dcollect data.

When I use FileAid it shows both of these dates. Why are they missing from the decollect extract?

To make things more frustrating, we are not allowed to run dcollect so we have no idea if there might be a problem with how the data is gathered.

Suggestions?

Thanks,
d

Hi Dick,

I believe the creation date is also in the catalog entry for the dataset and that may explain why Fileaid can find it and DCOLLECT can't.

Have you tried running DFdss using the date filtering options to gather some more info.
