    The VirusDefs files get replace each time you up date any way. Ever time you get an up you down all the def file again.

    You will see two def folders like this here.
    20011124.002
    20011205.022
    They are the last two updates.
    They show the dates too.

    So 20011205.022 is
    2001 12, 05 the other one is a backup.
    When you do a update the Incoming folder will make a new one 20011206.022 and when it's all done the the older 20011124.002 gets deleted.

    So what are the dates on the folders?
    Do you have more then two.

    Also if you look at the Definfo file it will have the dates in it.
    Mine say this.
    [DefDates]
    CurDefs=20011205.022
    LastDefs=20011124.002

    I have Norton Disk Doctor so it shows the NAV and the update date on it and sometimes the date will not change when done. But if I open the NAV up then it will update the date on NAV in Norton Disk Doctor window.
