Topic ""Invalid argument to date encode" (invalid timestamp)"

When trying to upload a folder with photos, I got the error Invalid argument to date encode. I found out that some files had invalid "Modified" timestamps. (In Windows Explorer, it shows as "28.06.30045 / 08:01:40" in File Properties. In the detailed listing the "Modified" column is blank).

Maybe WinSCP should set the timestamp to now and display a warning, or display a more understandable error message.

Does anyone know how to "touch" a file in Windows, ie. change the timestamp without modifying the file?

Most filemanagers (Total Commands, Altap Salamander, FAR...) allows that.
