Hello UjwalaIDC,

Since this leap second will be an "extra second", some systems will consider the date as hh:mm:59 then hh:mm:60 and only then hh:mm:00.

All the information I found about this regarding the Windows eco-system are that after a very long hh:mm:59 second (really 2 seconds long), it will go to hh:mm:00 without the extra hh:mm:60.

So technically, nothing to worry about.

Cheers.
