I do this within an AutoHotkey script using a loop and the code
FileSetTime, %ModificationTime%, %LongPath%, C, 1
This works nicely on local files.
Within a Samba network folder of a Synology DiskStation, however, the creation time is not set equal to the modification time by this line of code, but to the current time instead it seems. I don't know why this happens, but it happens no matter whether I map the particular folder as a drive or not. Other Windows Explorer extensions like Ninotech's Date Edit are nonetheless able to modify creation and/or modification dates of files stored in the samba network folder, so I guess it's not a general problem with Samba.
Can anybody reproduce this? Is there perhaps a solution to my problem?
- Thanks a lot for any help!
