    Getting the binary output from a file without changing the access date{RESOLVED}

    I'm working with some code for calculating the MD5 of a file that I got from another website.

    The code actually uses an Open Filename for Binary As #Fnum

    Is there a way to retrieve the Binary information from a file without accessing it? The reason I'm asking is the application that I'm working on is suppose to inform the user of how many duplicate files there are on a file server and also tell the user which ones are accessed.

    I'm using the MD5 to help identify the duplicate files but I can't seem to do so without changing the Last Accessed attribute.

    Any ideas?
