Rclone copy - changes file timestamp

I am using rclone 1.35 to copy my photos Amazon Drive using an Ubuntu 16.04LTS machine.

Files copied to Amazon Drive, has a Date Added set to the date and time of copying the file (shown in my browser while browsing my Amazon Drive).

However, if I download the file again from Amazon Drive, the Modified Time of the file is also set to the Date Added time.

How can I configure rclone to preserve the Modified Time of files copied to Amazon Drive?

Or am I missing something?

edit: I have also tried rclone sync, but it still changes the Modified Date to the time of the sync, which is not what I want

I see the same with with Amazon. I just don’t think they support this but will wait for @ncw to chime in.

Too bad really

There isn’t a way to save the modified time using the Amazon API as far as I know. There is an issue with a possible way of doing it: https://github.com/ncw/rclone/issues/371 which could be implemented.
