Enable/Disable Last Access Timestamp in Windows

The Last Access Time with a file or folder was disabled by default starting with Windows Vista, as it can add overhead to disk I/O.  To enable the Last Access Time feature, launch an administrative command prompt and use the following command:

fsutil behavior set disablelastaccess 0

fsutil_lastaccess

To disable the feature again in the future, use the same command but with a 1.

fsutil behavior set disablelastaccess 1
