Date of Restored Folders - HELP PLEASE

Recommended Posts

Recently, upon restoring several disks All my folder modification dates were set to the date of the Restore (not the actual folder modification dates)

 

Could swear I've experimented with every possible option I could find (I've toggled 'set source folders backup time' off and on) -

but still all folders appear on new volume with the same date (making searches a kludge).

 

what settings do I need to use, so that the actual modification time of the folder is restored correctly.

 

Feeling VERY stupid,

"Restore folder modification dates" is one of Retrospect's "Secret" preferences.

 

Option+Click on the Preferences button in the Special window. The option is one of the "File System" choices.

BLESS YOU DAVE

 

IS this accessible when creating the backup script or when doing the restore. If the latter, which is the correct option when scripting the backup?

Hi

 

This only affects restores and duplicates. You could leave it on all the time if you like.

 

One word of warning, there is a reason why this is a hidden option...

With this option enabled the finder may not display restored files/folders without logging out or rebooting the machine. In other words, if you don't see the files you restored, reboot the machine.

 

Thanks

Nate
