Copying Folders in Windows 10 Without Changing the Modified Dates


So you decided to backup your data to a second hard drive or an external hard disk, and then find out that the copied folders have the current time and date.

If you’re like me and this bothers you, and you want the folder’s original create date, the only way to copy them is through command prompt in Windows using ROBOCOPY command.

Assuming your data are currently on hard drive F: and you want to copy them to hard drive G:, then you can just open the command Prompt in windows and write the following command.


As simple as that. Any questions, let me know!
