    So I'm guessing that you won't be retrospectively implementing this feature into BC3, even when (IF) you implement it in BC4?
    Please tell me I'm wrong.

      Hello,

      That's hard to say. It would depend on the degree of difficulty in porting between the two versions. However, we'll implement it into BC4 first, as new features and development are concentrated on the latest major release.

      Is the upgrade price your concern? Or have you run into other trouble with the BC4 beta for why you'd want to avoid it? It does have a variety of other new features, and you wouldn't need to upgrade until the features you need (Creation date) are actually implemented. Your BC3 license does not expire. If you are running into any trouble or have feedback, do let us know in the BC4 forum or email us at [email protected].

      Depending on when you purchased BC3, you would likely qualify for a discount (generally either half off, or free upgrade). You can follow this KB article to calculate the details:

          For notifications, I recommend subscribing to the News and Announcements forum. We post new release information and summaries there, and the implementation of Creation or Created date would very likely be in that announcement.

          I'll also make a note in our tracker entry on the subject to post here, but we might miss the notification in this thread.

This has lead to disappointment in the past when we took this approach, so now we try to only share features we are certain will be included very soon or once they are ready for launch. I mentioned about Created Date here (http://www.scootersoftware.com/vbull...ad.php?t=12737) and linked to a forum post that goes into a bit more detail on our development schedule.
            Hi Aaron, another few months passed - cud you pls update us on the current status of this request?

            As always, thanks!

                Help

                Guys - any way to find differences based on 'date modified' attribute of the windows files.

                  Beyond Compare's default settings compare size and modified date of files. To change the comparison settings in Beyond Compare 3, select "Session > Session Settings" and go to the Comparison tab.

                      Beyond Compare 4 for Windows supports preservation of file creation dates. This feature isn't on by default. To turn it on in the Folder Compare, select "Session > Session Settings" or click the Rules toolbar button (referee icon). Go to the Handling tab. Check "Copy creation dates".

                        So could we have this in BC3 please?
                        We've waited a looooooooooong time.

                          Hello,

                          There are many new features that are newly added for BC4. We've worked hard on the new enhancements that made it into BC4, many of which have been commonly requested for many years (such as MTP:// support). We may be able to back-port high profile fixes, but most new features are reserved for the next major release once it has been launched:
                          http://www.scootersoftware.com/suppo...z=kb_lifecycle

                          Many applications release more often than once every 6 years, and charge more money for each major version. We hope our BC3 changelog shows our support for your purchase and that the BC4 new feature list would demonstrate it is a worthy upgrade.

                            I would like to add my vote for an option to preserve folder date/time stamps when copying.

                              This is when I would consider upgrading to BC4:
                              1) When BC can mirror a partition exactly, including file AND FOLDER modified and created timestamps.
                              2) It makes use of Windows Shadow Copy to copy open files.

                                Great job Scooter & BC Team. Would it COPY/ CLONE the "Created, Modified & Accessed" dates? All three or two ( C & M)?

                                Seriously! ? When/ which build did this get added? Can anyone confirm using this?
