Preserving the dates on folders (and files) when copying from anetwork share
A while ago I backed up my Win98SE computer's hard drive to a virtual
machine virutal disk drive. When I tried to copy everything back, the
dates on the various folders were not preserved no matter what I did.
Nor were the file dates preserved.
Now that Windows is up and running after swapping hard drives, I'm
trying to restore some files where dates were significant. It seems
when I copy a file by itself or in groups of FILES, the dates are
preserved, but if I include a folder the date modified gets set to the
current date. How do I copy the folders so the modification dates are
preserved? I tried to recall how to use the ms-dos style restore
command, but restore /? yielded "bad command or filename" indicating
it wasn't available, and Microsoft Backup only seems to work with
their own backup files.
The files I want are stored on a virtual hard drive, and I can share
them with either a virtual windows 98SE (cloned from the real computer
I'm trying to restore them to, I just boot the backup partition) or a
Virtual Windows XP Professional computer.
Even if I could access them from the host Vista 64 OS, trying to
access a Vista share will make a Windows 98SE computer crash, either
virtual or real.
