Autopsy timestamp reliability?

Hello. I am using Autopsy 4.15.0 to analyze an old hard drive from 2002. I noticed that information generated from the index.dat file sometimes has a different created/modified times than associated files in the cache. Which timestamp is correct? How can I get the most accurate time created/modified info?

Thank you for your assistance.

I got the same problem times ago since Autopsy 4.10, with the old index.dat.
Maybe it is an issue with pasco2, used by Autopsy.

Were you able to determine what timestamp was the most accurate?
