    I want to copy a folder containing all my web site from an computer (under XP) to another. Unfortunatly, when I copy the folder, the creation/modification of the new folder and ALL the sub-folder is altered to current time. This is not acceptable in this case, because management web site software want to upload all my web site :(

    I tried to zip the folder before copying and unzip locally, but the pb is the same...

    Do you know a simple way to copy without altering the date of the folder ?

    Thaks a lot

    You could use the backup util (start/programs/accessories/system tools) to creat a single file, transfer that file to the new location and restore it. Or if the computers are on the same Lan use the same backup util to resore it and select a different location...

    This will preserve date and time...
