Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

When I copy a file from a PC to an other, the copy doesn't have the same timestamp as the source.
I have the same probleme using either copy/paste or xcopy.
The source PC runs Win2003 and the destination one WinXP, they have the same setup (time wise).

How could I prevent that from happening ? or fix it afterwards ?

Robocopy Should do this for you by default. It is also much faster and more robust then a normal copy. It can be a pain to get the commands right.

Full documentation can be found Here Tt can be downloaded from Microsoft
