“Last modified” timestamp not retained when copying files

Post by XnTriq »

When I copy a file (via Edit » Copy to... or Drag&Drop), the duplicate ends up having a different timestamp (“last modified”) than the original.

This works for me with v.0.21(L).
Could you check if files copied with MP show expected times with v.1.96 also? I probably have problem with emulator (creation and modified read the same in properties tab, when creation is actually different in file manager).

Hi marsh :-)

Results when copying a file with MP v0.21 on Windows 2000 SP4:

Code: Select all

                           |       Created        |       Modified       |
---------------------------+----------------------+----------------------+
X:\Test\Sample.png         | 09/Oct/2009 12:00:00 | 09/Oct/2009 21:00:00 |
X:\Test\Copy of Sample.png | 09/Oct/2009 12:00:00 | 09/Oct/2009 21:00:00 |
  • :bugfixed: Copy of Sample.png has the same modification date/time stamp as Sample.png
    :bugconfirmed: Copy of Sample.png has the same creation date/time stamp as Sample.png
In version 1.96.5 everything works as expected.

That's confusing. Here, it is the property tab of v.1.96 which is incorrect, while MP properties is correct. Ext3 filesystem.
