re: How can I preserve my files' create dates, after copying

Hi Regi,

A very simple and fast method I use is WinZip. Just select the folders option to keep file structures intact. It will preserve all dates associated with a file on restore. I am using a licensed WinZip (you can also d/l free versions) which lets me set up a batch file to run all my backups. The BAT is on my desktop making it easy to use.
You can also set it to 0 compression. That makes it run very fast if you have plenty of backup space.

I hope this helps.
