Preserving file date (4 posts)

    I am connecting to a server with sftp and file dates are not being preserved on uploaded files.

    I tried using 'Do not use MDTM commands', and restarted Fetch, but got the same result.

    I can get correct dates with the same server using Fugu: any ideas about what I might be doing wrong?

    Currently Fetch does not preserve modification dates on upload... sorry.

    This is on our to-do list for a future version of Fetch.

    It took a while (5 years!), but Fetch 5.7 now preserves file modification dates on upload. This feature is supported by most, but not quite all, FTP and SFTP servers.
