Preserve timestamps of directories (Bug #94)

Please register my vote for that tracker item.

I also would like to have the option "Preserve timestamp" working for folders too.
It would mean a more reliable copy, preserving more details of the source.

Maybe we should preserve only when Destination directory doesn't exist or is empty.
It might be good to think about other conditions where we could preserve or not timestamps.
E.g, adding a new file to a not-empty Destination folder should update its timestamp as usual.

"Preserve timestamp" for directories

+1 vote to "Preserve timestamp" for directories, too.

I really need this feature, backup is really wrong without it :(

Very long awaited feature to preserve timestamps of directories...

Not a difficult feature.
Could be possible to implement it?

This would be very important, when I create backup of a server, and I need to know the creation date of the (original) directories, too.

Thanks very much!

This is needed

The somewhat old fashioned program FTP Commander does what it should do: copy a file without changing anything (eg the time and date). Only then you can verify that the files on your local machine are the same as on the ftp server.
WinSCP is a very good looking and pleasant program, but the fact that it changes the timestamp when it copies files is a big flaw.

Ben.

It's not in the development atm. There's no more information I can provide. Sorry.
