How to return to old version of DC?

Hi all,

I have done some modifications to my WebDynpro-DC (not local) that I want to return. Unfortunately I have already checked in the activities. Now I want to return to the state of July 8th. To do this I perform the following steps:

1. Start Studio

2. Login to NWDI

3. Delete DC

4. Create Project without building DCs after sync

5. In DTR-perspective: Sync to date "July 8th"

==> All local Folders under comp are empty (bin, gen, genddic, gen_wdp)

==> All DTR-controlled files are not younger than July 8th

==> everything seems to be as expected

6. Build DC (already tried "Development Component / build", "Reload", "Rebuild Project")

This leads to a rather confusing state. Some generated files have a timestamp I do not understand.

Example: _comp\bin\......\comp\ApmgModelComp.wdcomponent

The timestamp is depending on wether I am logged in to NWDI when building the project. When I am logged in the timestamp is "July 10th". When I am not logged in the timestamp is "June 27th". Obviously the system remembers some generated files. But why and where? The consequence is of course that the generated files do not fit to the rest of my DC. I would expect timestamps of current time because the files are generated "freshly", don't they?

I'm sure I'm doing something wrong. What else do I have a versioning system for?

Thanks for each idea,
