I have problem with lost timestamps ( creation date ) on files copied using Total Commander - only modification date remained. It's hundreds thousands of files and few TB of data, so I prefer not to copy them again.
I managed to update only folders timestamps using robocopy - that works great:
robocopy /e /dcopy:t c:\source d:\destination
But all files timestamps are modified to copy time.
I tried some options like:
robocopy /e /copy:t c:\source d:\destination robocopy /e /copyall c:\source d:\destination
but it didn't help.
It does the job but only when destination is empty:
robocopy /e /copyall /dcopy:t c:\source d:\destination
It also does the job but only on Windows 7 ( on Windows 10 it does not work ) and it copies again all files which is not what I want:
robocopy /e /copyall /is c:\source d:\destination
Anyone has idea how to update only timestamps of files without copying data itself again? It could be any application/method but I prefer free one if possible. I need to recreate whole subdirectory structure, hidden files and symlinks - full mirror. :)
