Angry IOZS New Day Creation...

K, ive been having this problem for like a month, the script works fine, it creates dated links, and my symlinks work also, But its always exactly 24 hrs behind!!!, Like today at 12:00am GMT-4:00 it will create 1021 instead of 1022, heres my set-up from IOZS.ini:
[NEWDAY]
DATED_DIR=C:\MP3\|/MP3|d:\ioFTPD\site\MP3-Today,C:\0-DAY\|/0-DAY|d:\ioFTPD\site\0-DAY-Today
DATE_FORMAT=%m%d
;ioNewDay calculates time based on localtime, ioFTPD scheduler is based on UTC time.
TIMEOFFSET=-4
VFS_CHMOD=777
VFS_CHOWN=100:1
DAYS_OLD=3
CLOSED_VFS_CHMOD=755
and heres my setup from ioftpd.ini:
NewDay = 0 4 * * D:\ioFTPD\scripts\ioZS\ioNewDay.exe

If you dont need the symlinks you can use NewDay from my site, it can create days ahead and it can change permissions for x days ahead nad back. The ease is that you just set it to create a day ahead (or more if you so wish) and simply put it in the scheduler.

Try changing DATE_FORMAT to something like %H%M, this will give you the time and then change the offset value to add however many hours you need to make it think its the next day..Oh, and then don't forget to change the DATE_FORMAT value back.

[NEWDAY]
DATED_DIR=C:\MP3\|/MP3|d:\ioFTPD\site\MP3-Today,C:\0-DAY\|/0-DAY|d:\ioFTPD\site\0-DAY-Today

;ioNewDay calculates time based on localtime, ioFTPD scheduler is based on UTC time.
TIMEOFFSET=+1
VFS_CHMOD=777
VFS_CHOWN=100:1

Ok this is the beginners solution...
make 24 lines in your scheduler:
Do0000 = 0 0 * * EXEC c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe /c time /t >>0000.txt
Do0100 = 0 0 * * EXEC c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe /c time /t >>0100.txt
Do0200 = 0 0 * * EXEC c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe /c time /t >>0200.txt
Do0300 = 0 0 * * EXEC c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe /c time /t >>0300.txt
etc... until you've done them on every hour.
Stay around then untill your clock turns over and a new day starts and just look which files are created. The latest is the one you need to put your normal newday things in.

You could also just make a dir at 0:00, and look at the timestamp on it. (or any other time if you have some basic math knowledge )
Then youll know the utc time @ 0:00.
Put scheduler to that.
Iozs uses localtime so +0 offset would work just fine.
It really aint that hard :/
And if it still makes wrong dirs, maybe make a crappy newday site command so you can try it using that site command.
Either way its quite easy so dunno why ya cant get it to run yourself.

i believe the actual trick is the fact that newday is backwards. i'm -6 GMT but what i have to use is actually +6 for timeoffset.
