Given a file and a directory and we have to get and print their last access time in UTC format using C# program.

File.GetLastAccessTimeUtc()

This is a method of "File class, which returns the last access time of a file or a directory in UTC format.

Syntax:

File.GetLastAccessTimeUtc(path);

Parameter(s):

  1. path - Location of file or directory.

Last access time contains following detail:

  • Date
  • Month
  • Year
  • Hour
  • Minute
  • Second
  • AM/PM

Program

using System;
using System.IO;

namespace ConsoleApplication1
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main()
        {
            DateTime dt1;
            DateTime dt2;
    
            dt1 = File.GetLastAccessTimeUtc("ABC.TXT");
            Console.WriteLine("Last Access Time of file(ABC.TXT) in UTC: " + dt1);

            dt2 = File.GetLastAccessTimeUtc("mydir");
            Console.WriteLine("Last Access Time of directory(mydir) in UTC : " + dt2);
  
        }
    }
}

Output

Last Access Time of file(ABC.TXT) in UTC: 10/31/2017 4:25:36 PM
Last Access Time of directory(mydir) in UTC : 10/31/2017 3:38:23 PM

Note: In above program, we need to remember, when we use "File" class, System.IO namespace must be included in the program.
