Cubase changing file created date

I’m on Cubase 10.5 and I opened an older file today, dunno if the file was a Cubase 10 or 9 or what. But before I ever even hit save or anything, it changed the file created date to today’s date. I was actually hoping to see the date that I created it, to see when I wrote those riffs (midi, no audio).

I’m not going to put the date into every filename I make, so is there another way I can check the created date of this file, since Cubase has overwritten that in the OSX filesystem?

maybe you got the autosave function on!
check it in the preferences menu

This shouldn’t change the file created date, though, only the modified date.
