I have a new G441 and will be copying 1TB of files from old system's drive to new drive via a USB backup disk. I'd like to retain the file's original creation and modified dates?
If I do a simple COPY with File Explorer the dates are all changed to today's date. Is there another simple way to do this?
Look at the copy/dcopy switches. You can use dcopy:DAT (Data, attribute, timestamp). /copyall will copy all attributes for files.
Try: Robocopy.exe <source directory> <target> /DCOPY:DAT /COPYALL /S
Should retain Data, attribs and timestamp for the folder and everything on the included files. /S includes subdirectories.
Thanks, Mike! I'll give it a try.
