You can use the FSUTIL for the same that you are looking for. This can run from the Command prompt but for that first you have to make yourself as administrator. Just click on the start and then run the command prompt and then right click on the console and select the run as administrator. Then run the command that is given below.
Code:
fsutil behavior set disablelastaccess 0
This will enable the last access time recording. So go with it and see the response. Thanks

Hey you can do the same with the help of the Registry. This will enable the same and record the last access time when you visit the folder next time. So give a try with the same and see that it working or not. Go through the step to enable the last access time.
  • Click on the start
  • Go to run and type regedit, hit enter
  • On the Registry Window navigate "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\FileSystem"
  • Now on the Right pane double click on the "NtfsDisableLastAccessUpdate?
  • Set the value of that to "0"
  • Now restart the system to take effect

Hey to disable the same you have to follow the same procedure as you did for enabling the Last Access timestamp. Just start the command prompt and en run is as administrator and then type the command given below that will disable the same so go through the same and it will disable the last access time stamp.
Code:
fsutil behavior set disablelastaccess 1

This can be disable in the Windows by the registry. All you have to do is to follow the procedure that is described for the enabling of the same and then instead of putting the o put there "1" and that will disable the same again. I hope that this will be the solution that you are looking for and will work for you. Say thanks if it works for you. Bye
