Implement a "touch" command on the right-click of a file to set the current timestamp.

This would be even more useful to set the time stamp on folders, which are created when copied.

Current behavior: On the network is a folder which is missing on the system. When downloaded the system creates a folder with the current time stamp. The files inside the folder have their time stamps preserved.

But when you compare folders by time, the folder on the system is newer. I have noticed that this confuses Filezilla 3.5 into thinking all of the files inside should overwrite the counterpart folder on the network. If you could synchronize the time stamps of the folders, this problem would be solved. A cross-platform version of "touch" would be needed.

I don't see this option.
how has this been implemented?
(or if it's not been implemented I request this feature too)
