I did ample research before posting this.
I am using macOS Sierra 10.12 on a brand-new iMac, and when I search my files (I am searching for all .psd files in a folder with many sub-folders) the Date Modified column in the search result doesn't match the files' info.
For example, the first .psd that pops up from the search is dated yesterday 2AM in the 'Date Modified' column (in list view), but opening the file info reveals the correct date, which is today, as I have just created the file.
I tried a number of solutions I found online:
- Relaunching Finder
- Resetting the system preferences for date and time
- Deleting com.apple.finder.plist and the sidebar.plist and relaunching Finder
At this point I don't know what to try anymore.
Edit: I forgot to say that if I view the files in Finder in list mode, without searching for them, the dates are correct! It's only when I search.
Edit 2: Here is a screenshot of the problem, search window on the left, regular window on the right.
I can't determine whether it happens only with .psd files, but here's some more data which might be useful: The files are shot on a camera, then downloaded on a Windows computer, then transferred to my iMac on an SD card. The dates on both date created and date modified fields don't match with the dates they were shot, downloaded, nor transferred.
If I create a new PSD or JPG or TXT file on my Mac, it displays correctly both in search and regular browsing.
I really need to be able to sort these files by date modified!
