Dates on Folders

SyncBackFree is the freeware version of SyncBack. It is *not* an evaluation version of SyncBackPro/SE.

Dates on Folders

Post by svanetempest »

Hi,
I am testing syncback as I am frustrated by FBackup removing all permissions from files on a restore.
So far it all looks very good.
One question that I have is;
Using Windows clients, all files within folders have the correct modified dates when copied to/from a QNAP NAS, but the Created Date is the current date when the files are mirror copied up to the NAS and same when restored to the computer. This plays havoc with photos that do not have EXIF data.
Is there any way that folders/files can maintain their original dates (as the way that MS Richcopy does)?
Do I need a paid version to do achieve this? I did see an option greyed out buried in the expert menus.
Will this option also allow existing folders being copied to retain their original dates or are those set to the current date regardless?
Thanks.
