Date Created changes in copy
I am copying files from my old Win/ME disk to my Vista NTFS disk. When it
was done I found every file had today's date on the Vista side of the copy.
I am displaying Date Created on both sides.

How can I preserve the creation dates when I copy from the old disk?

John

Re: Date Created changes in copy
I John,
when you copy, you are creating something new so the creation date is always
modified.
Despite having the same content, a copy was creat today from a yesterday
file that continues to exist BUT, if you move your files instead of copy
them you will preserve the creation date.

Re: Date Created changes in copy
I just copied Program Files to a new folder called NEWPF on the main Vista
disk. You said, "When you copy, you are creating something new so the
creation date is always modified." But this copy didn't modify the creation
date. It preserved it in the copy. This was not a move.

In my original post, I did a copy between my old WinME disk and my NTFS
Vista disk. My problem was that it changed the date to today's date. It
was from a FAT32 disk to a NTFS disk; one was created by Win/ME, the other
by Vista. In my test copy within my main local disk, the copy didn't change
the date to today's date. I did a copy, not a move, in this local copy
test.

Hope this explains the problem clearer.

John
