Hi. I am a new user and I noticed that the folder timestamps are not synced when mirror/syncing, ie. folders created on the destination drive had a different created and modified timestamp than the source ones.

Did I miss the setting for such sync? Can someone please point me to it? Thanks!

+1 on retaining the original folder timestamp. I don't understand why Windows doesn't do this by default, like Linux does. I also don't understand why this is difficult to implement, given that Robocopy and Xcopy does this. Perhaps if there were a way to provide our own copy command as an external application, that would also solve the issue. I still love FFS and have pitched in to the donation account a couple of times. Adding a (optional) way to preserve the original folder timestamp would make FFS perfect.
