Question (1) When data files acquired with Analyst® software are saved to a network server, does the time stamp on the data come from the local machine or the network server?
Answer: During network acquisition, the time stamps for the data acquired should be the time on local acquisition PC and should be consistent with the audit trail time for this data acquisition.
Question (2) After processing data in the Analyst project folder residing on the network server, the results files were also saved on the network server. Does the data time stamp come from the local machine or the network server?
Answer: When network data is processed, the time stamp should be from the network server time when the processed result file is saved.
When data files are acquired to the network, the time reported in the File Info in Explore mode for Last Sample Finished is the actual time the file was copied to the network, which might differ from the time of acquisition of the last sample. This is due to the delay when transferring files to the network (SCR 9523, see Analyst 1.6.3 release notes, page 76).
