I found rclone after a long search for an easy tool that can provide easy way to upload files, give an accurate progress report, work in Linux and can automatically change each uploaded file tier to Archive. Everything worked as expected except preserving the time creation date & modification date (less important).
Since I am dealing meanly with video archive files, I was unable to preserve the creation date specially for mpg files.
The command I am using:
rclone copy -P file/00001.mp4 AZURE-NAME:AZURE-CONTAINER --no-update-modtime
Viewing the file from Azure storage explorer or the web shows today's date in the modification date of the file. While doing "rclone ls AZURE-NAME:AZURE-CONTAINER " shows the correct date, which is great, but when downloading the file, it seems that there is no way to know the original date.
Anyway I can get these information back after I upload it to Azure? I can always keep a log file just in case, but it's not the cleanest way to do it
