    A weird thing.......... 11th Mar 18 at 8:05 AM
    I use an Asus 2 in 1 thingie, I think it's a T 100HA or something like that, for business. At the end of the working day, at home, I transfer the files I've generated during the day via a USB stick to my laptop or PC.

    However, all of a sudden, the date format is changing during the transfer process. 11/3/18 is suddenly becoming 3/11/18. On the Asus, they're ok, but when they arrive at the laptop or PC, they've changed.

    Can someone help?

    I should mention that I've tried different USB sticks, but it's happening with all of them.

    That is American date format .
    Are the other files on the pc all American date format too ?
    If you look at the current date on the pc, is that American format too ?

    ^^ Date on the PC looks to be set to US instead of uk as Andy says.

    Also, why don't you install OneDrive, Gdrive or dropbox on both devices. That way theres no need to transfer files at all.

    I agree. Install google docs or dropbox as it's way easier to view your files and do away with transferring data every now and then.
