You said, the diff concerned just one byte, right?
Were the corrupted files all Microsoft Office files? I have seen this behaviour 
once, and then it turned out to be the originals that had been changed in the 
meantime. It seems that Microsoft knows how to change a file without altering 
the modification time.
