#642 closed Bug report

Date/time of uploaded files not preserved

I'm really pleased with Mozilla, except for one thing.
Whenever I upload files, the date/time stamp is not the
same as the local date/time stamp.

This is particularly annoying as some files are dated
2002 to 2003, and the upload date/time stamp results in
the server date/time stamp. This makes comparing files
local<-->remote very difficult. It doesn't appear to be
a server problem, because I have used Leech FTP on the
same server, for an upload, and the datetime stamp
(from local) was preserved.

This is not Mozilla

Unfortunately there is no FTP command which can be used to
change the timestamp on servers.
Some ftp servers misuse the MDTM command for this, but
unfortunately that is causing problems with certain filenames.

So it won't be possible to change this

I am having this issue as well with the latest and previous versions. When uploading files to my website the date/time is not preserved but set to the current local/remote date/time. I cannot have this as scripts on my page read the file date as part of a file version report and i recently lost all content and had to reupload it. Now every single file and folder on my server is the same date with the file times being seconds near each other.

When transferring files between computers using the server/client combo I lose important modification/create times - especially annoying with photos and wanting to sort by folder date within.

I'm sorry, but if that is the command that works (albeit only on some and not all filenames as you say) and there can't even be an option to enable its usage -- even with disclaimers and alarm message boxes -- I cannot use FileZilla for my needs.
