Under Windows, running 'DIR' in the command prompt shows a file's last modified time to the nearest minute. For example:

17.10.2011  14:55           115 638 pgstat.stat

How do I get more accurate results?

Here's what I did... Download the Google Chrome browser if you're not using it already (it's very good) and paste the path into the address box. Your directory contents will be listed with the modified time down to the seconds.
