Hmm, not fully convinced yet. I am currently running 2014 Release Build 828 - 2014.11.21.59552 (x64)
I do see the content doesn't change when using AgentRansack, but...

I have a set of files created at around 02:40 am in CEST timezone on the morning of the 20th of October 2016.

I used AgentRansack on this set and it shows me different modified time stamps depending on the day I set my computer to.

Setting my date to October 28th (CEST during daylight saving time) AgentRansack will show me a modified time stamp of 2:40,
but having the current date set in Windows (NTFS) (to CET/winter time) instead of 2:40 AgentRansack shows 1:40 as the modified timestamp for the same file.

Windows Explorer does not show a difference though.

Not critical for myself, but a noticeable difference.
When explained this might be valuable for professional users of AgentRansack and FileLocator.

Perfect! Just tried the latest AR 2016 and all modified dates are showing OK now.
No matter the local time I set on the Windows box.
And I like the new highlighting of my search strings in the results.

Agent Ransack 2016 has improved the way it handles file times, please use that instead of Agent Ransack 2014.
