How are modified files detected?

I am upgrading a somewhat heavily modified JIRA 3.13 instance. I would like to bring as much of the system back to the original state before upgrading. Can anyone help me figure out how the "Modified Files" under "System Info" are determined? Is there an original copy somewhere I could use to see what the changes are?

Hi,

Once you can determine those fles that were modified, you can use tools like http://www.diffnow.com/ to look at the modifications done by comparing the present copy against the downloaded version
