13.4 Precise file timestamps on Windows

The module ‘windows-stat-timespec’ ensures that, on native Windows platforms, struct stat contains st_atim, st_mtim, st_ctim fields of type struct timespec, providing 100 ns resolution for the timestamps of files.

Note: On some types of file systems, the timestamp resolution is limited by the file system. For example, on FAT file systems, st_mtim only has a resolution of 2 seconds. For more details, see https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms724290.aspx.
