Windows 7 SP1 with Webclient (webdav), Office 2010 Professional Plus, connects to a Sharepoint 2010 Document Library, using Explorer View, mapped to a disc drive letter. Document library has check out requirement turned off.
Customers work only in Windows Explorer with Webclient, they dont want to use web interface to Sharepoint.
Information to recreate the problem:
CASE1) Let's say a new docx document is created in Explorer View (in Explorer by right-click-new Word document). Customer waits couple of minutes, enters and changes the document in Explorer View, and then saves it and closes Word. Result:
Column "Date Modified" in Explorer view is unchanged, when it should have been changed. (!)
CASE2) Let's say I created new docx document in Web View (all documents view). Customer waits couple of minutes, enters the same document IN EXPLORER VIEW, changes it and then saves it and closes Word. Result: Column "Date Modified" in Explorer view
is CHANGED to the new save time so now it works!

Also when I copy/paste to Explorer View , column Date
