This has been a problem for over a decade. I particularly see it with networked drives. If I have the same file on a local drive and on a networked drive, the file timestamps are off by one hour for 6 months of the year.

File timestamps should only be valid in GMT. Let the final software call an OS function to convert it to local time just before displaying the file time.

It's when the OS tries to be too smart that the problem arises. Some BIOS can automatically adjust for DST. But so can the OS. I believe the problem is when one drive is already automatically adjusted, but another drive is not. As in local drive versus networked drive.
