    Before yesterday when I uploaded files to the server, they retained their original modification dates. Suddenly starting yesterday (Jan 1), they do not. They're getting timestamped with the time of the upload. Our server admin says nothing changed on the server that would cause that.

    I was looking for a Fetch option that might explain it, but can't find one re retaining mod dates during UPload. Is there such an option? Anyone else having this problem?

    I'm sorry, but there is no option to preserve modification dates when uploading with Fetch. Fetch has never preserved modification dates when uploading, so I'm not sure why you would be seeing a change in behavior now.

    (Fetch does preserve modification dates when downloading, however.)

    Fetch 5.7, just released, now preserves file modification dates when uploading.
