Hi all. I love rclone, and use it a lot, but I've run into something bothersome.
What is the problem you are having with rclone?
When I try to copy or sync files with rclone from one drive to another, the directories' modified times are set to when the copy/sync happens, rather than the modified time of the source directories.
What is your rclone version (output from
rclone v1.53.1 - os/arch: windows/amd64 - go version: go1.15
Which OS you are using and how many bits (eg Windows 7, 64 bit)
Windows 10 Pro, 64-bit, Version 2004 (OS Build 19041.450)
The command you were trying to run (eg
rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)
rclone sync "C:/dir" "D:/dir"
Though, I also tested with:
rclone copy "C:/dir" "D:/dir"
This has been posted about before here (I can't include links in my post, so here is the thread request path: /t/is-there-a-way-to-make-sure-rclone-preserves-the-metadata-of-the-date-created-or-date-modified-fields/17421), so I will omit logs/my personal rclone.conf. Ultimately, the solution seems to be to use robocopy, but I'm kind of focused on rclone's sync option. I realize robocopy has
/mir, which I will fall back to in the case that rclone can't work with this, but I just wanted to ask if this was easily possible to fix, or if there already exists some flag to enable the behavior.
Thanks very much, and thanks for making rclone, I really appreciate this tool. <3
