The computer did not resync because the required time was change to big w32tm /rsync

My computer defaults to a 2002 date when it boots. When I tried to run w32tm /resync it shows this error:

The computer did not resync because the required time was change to big

This is easy to fix. From the command line add one more parameter to the w32tm command:

w32tm /resync /force

  2. I have been trying to fix this for months and months – old laptop cmos battery dead. Fed up having to sync time manually.

    Undocumented command!!! Barstewards!!!

    Thank you so much.

  3. Oh my god I really can’t thank you enough for this, been through all the forums and sites, tried all their methods with no success. Adding this one /force actually solved all the issue for me. Thank you!
