    Hi group,

    I've just registered and have a burning question for you gurus.
    I'm running Windows XP SP1. Is there a way to copy files from one directory to another without the target files getting the creation date or mod date changed?

    I believe I've read about it before but I can't find any info on it. I wore out my keyboard on Windows help and msoft website.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    Oooooohhhh no..... Don't need to worry about that this semester. I have very old fashioned teachers that want a Hard Copy of all of our work. Can u believe it?

    These are actually some files that I want to move to a new folder(they are .inf and various driver and config files.) If I don't have a 'real' date for them I'm totally S.O.L. when I try to figure out which is what!!

    BTW, sounds like the voice of experience talking.......!hehe
