I know the default behaviour of (any version) Windows when copying or moving folders, is that Windows actually first creates a new folder, copies the content and when moving folders, deletes the source folder after succesful copy. In contrast to the Mac OS, where copy and move mechanisms assume that, when you copy a folder, the properties of the copied folder should have the same properties as the source folder, thus retaining the original creation date!
Is there any way to change this behaviour in Windows ? I know Robocopy in Windows Server 2008 has an option to retain folder creation dates, but I would like to know if you can change Windows 7/Windows Server 2008 to behave likewise.
It is very annoying that when you restore or copy a folder, the new folder has the creation date of current date, instead of the original creation date. People tend to look for old folders which do no longer exist when you have copied or moved those folders.
