system files on 2821 router have no time/data stamp

I'm using the following code: Cisco IOS Software, 2800 Software (C2800NM-SPSERVICESK9-M), Version 12.4(15)T3 and when I do a 'dir all' I have no time/date stamp on my system directory namely my running-config (see below). It would be nice to know the last time it was saved. I would appreciate any ideas. Thanks.

#dir all
Directory of archive:/

No files in directory

Error getting file system status (Unknown error 0)
Directory of system:/

  156  drwx           0                    <no date>  cme
    2  -r--           0                    <no date>  default-running-config
    3  drwx           0                    <no date>  its
  143  dr-x           0                    <no date>  memory
    1  -rw-        5753                    <no date>  running-config

Hi Scot,

There should be in initial date associated with each file (posted below).  If you want to archive configs, then you can use the command archive in the config mode and point it to you flash, so every time you save the config it will keep the latest plus 13 for a total of 14 copies on the flash for you.
