  • Sync copies file and changes modified date to current time

    I'm testing a synchronization from a Linux system to a Windows share. I'm running BC on Linux and when I update a file to the Windows share, it copies the file but updates the modified date to the current date instead of the last modified date of the file being copied. As a result, immediately after the sync, the file is no longer in sync - now the newer file is on the target side.

    I haven't been able to find anything in a search of the threads and am not sure whether this is a configuration problem or a Linux/Windows problem. Any suggestions would be helpful.

    UPDATE: I've played a little more with this. I tried to update the timestamp by selecting the synced files and Touching them. I get an error that days the "Operation is not allowed." It's not a permissions thing - I've verified that. Does anyone have any idea what is going on here?

    If you use the Linux Explorer to perform the copy, does it set the Modified Timestamp in the same way? Can you modify the timestamps locally with a Windows BC3 install? As a different user, can you still modify the timestamp?

      If I use Dolphin (KDE 4.2) the file copies and updates the new copy with the timestamp of the original file - just as it should. I modify timestamps on the target from other Windows computers running BC3 all the time.
