Not seeing modified date meta data on Storj/Wasabi when mounting

What problem are you having with RCLONE?

I'm trying to properly show the file modified date when mounting using a 3rd party tool like CloudMounter or CyberDuck. It seems that only rclone can recognize the mdate in the meta data. Has anyone else had this experience? I'm only seeing the date created when using any other s3 mounting tool.

- os/kernel: 23.2.0 (arm64)
- os/type: darwin
- os/arch: arm64 (ARMv8 compatible)
- go/version: go1.21.6
- go/linking: dynamic
- go/tags: cmount

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)

Storj, Wasabi - they all have the same issue

The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

rclone lsf --format "M" [remote:path]

outputs meta data as such

{"btime":"2024-02-01T22:56:12.219Z","content-type":"application/pdf","mtime":"2018-07-09T17:29:12-05:00","tier":"STANDARD"}

However, when mounting and viewing this file from any 3rd party mounter, it shows yesterday (the day uploaded) as the file date. If I use rclone mount it shows the date properly. Why?

[DropboxLxxxxxx]
type = dropbox
token = XXX

[DropboxPersonal]
type = dropbox
token = XXX

[StorjLxxxxxxt]
type = s3
provider = Storj
access_key_id = XXX
secret_access_key = XXX
endpoint = 

[StorjPersonal]
type = s3
provider = Storj
access_key_id = XXX
secret_access_key = XXX
endpoint = 

[StorjTesting]
type = s3
provider = Storj
access_key_id = XXX
secret_access_key = XXX
endpoint = 

[WasabiTest]
type = s3
provider = Wasabi
access_key_id = XXX
secret_access_key = XXX
endpoint = 
location_constraint = 3

Had to remove all links from config because I'm a new user and it won't let me have links. :stuck_out_tongue:

How are you mounting it?

If I use rclone mount the modified dates work perfectly. If I use a 3rd party tool like Cloudmounter, or even the Storj web interface, all the modified dates are wrong. I'm assuming it's because the metadata format for mdate is custom to rclone.

Sorry I am unaware how those other tools mount.

Rclone talks about mod times here with S3:

Amazon S3 (rclone.org)

For the other tools, you'd have to ask them.

Thanks. It seems the use of custom meta data for mtime is why it only works w/ rclone mount. Wondering if any other 3rd party supports it.

I know some other tools use that mtime convention, but unfortunately AWS didn't make a standard and you can't set Last-Modified which is what tools read by default :frowning:
