keeping timestamps when upload to server

#1 Post by greggustin » 2009-09-03 14:10

how (see subject) :^^:

and
now that I have already backed up my pal's
12 gb of data
(about 20,000 files)
and they ALL have same timestamp :hammer:
(ie time of arrival on remote server)
how can I reset the timestamp of the files to be the same
(on his HD and on my remote FTP server? - without re-uploading)
(which took about 15 hours)

thanks
**************
just noted:
I had also FTP some of his files to my local BU server
(using a different FTP client)
while all the Folders had Today's timestamps
all the files kept the timestamps from HIS server (HD)

Menu Transfer - Preserve timestamps of transferred files (Server must support MFMT)

Without reuploading it's amost impossible (you'd have to set timestamps one-by-one).

Try enabling that option, reupload all files and set overwrite mode to Resume. So the files won't be transferred again (except ASCII), but the timestamps will be set. (Untested!)
