How can the Date Created be later than the date modified?

I am reviewing some recordings. (i.e m4am, mp3 and so on)  When I open the properties menu to see what date they were created, the "Created" date is after the "Modified" date.

That isn't unusual with copied files, when you copy a file the file's created date becomes the modified date and the current date (when the file is copied) becomes the created date, copy any existing file on your computer and you will observe this behaviour.

Programmers are either not taught about Occam's razor or they forgot about it the following day.
