FSCreationDate vs. ContentCreationDate
Authored by: danielj7 on May 11, '05 05:58:04PM
kMDItemFSCreationDate is the date that the filesystem records as being when the file was created. kMDItemContentCreationDate would be when the content of the file was created and is stored as part of that content. The two should usually be the same, but could get out of sync for various reasons, e.g. if the file is duplicated, the FSCreationDate might change while the ContentCreationDate would stay the same.
