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

Copying a file / folder to a Windows NTFS share from Mac OSX10.6.x updates the "Created At" to be time of copy (this is fine) but doesn't modify "Modified At". We want it to update the Modified At as we have some tools that work off of this date and not the Created At, so it doesn't see them (we have to touch each one to update the Modified At).

Is this a configurable option in either the Mac or on the Windows server (Server 2003 R2)? We don't want to have to run a program afterwards (touch, robocopy, etc.) because that is lame. Thanks!
