    Great post. This tip will be very helpful for Windows 7 users. Thanks!

    It works for me!  Thanks!
    Please note that the instructions above are wrong:
    “After you’ve changed the date and time attributes, click Touch to save the changes” is incorrect.  The “Touch” button sets the timestamp to the CURRENT date and time.

    To set the timestamp to what you choose, click either “Apply” or “OK”, but NOT “Touch”.

    Also note that you can change the seconds on the timestamp window, but only minutes show on the file manager display.

     Thank you very much! It works in Windows XP.

    You can also just open the file and “save as”. The new file will have the current time stamp.

    There is no simple way to do this in windows. There are several programs which claim to be able to preserve the creation date of files. The best among those few programs which surely will do the trick is GS RichCopy 360 Enterprise. The software provides allot of other features like e-mail notification when job is done, scheduling your copy etc. Its very robust and reliable. I’ve been using it myself from a long time. You must give it a try. Hope this might help.
