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

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
