Description (last modified by Tardigrad)

When uploading files with Mountain Duck original timestamps for modification are still replaced with upload time. In Cyberduck there is an option to keep old timestamps which works great with OneDrive and Disk-O ( Is there a way to make in work in Mountain Duck too?

I already uploaded a bunch of data (over 500 GB) to both clouds and now I realized that all the timestamps were overwritten. Is there a way I could synchronize the timestamps of files in the clouds with the original files with Cyberduck? The built in synchronize feature only works with modified files.

In OneDrive I was able to fix this by synchronizing the timestamps in Total Commander. But this doesn't help with Disk-O ( as the client doesn't recognize, that the files were changed.

The timestamps are set by the application (such as Finder) writing the files to the mounted volume and forwarded to the remote server. Therefore the default setting copy timestamps does not apply in Mountain Duck. You could set updated timestamps for the files by using rsync to mirror timestamps on files only such as

rsync -vv --no-whole-file --recursive --size-only --times --existing <source location> /Users/<username>/Library/Group\ Containers/\ Support/duck/Volumes/<volume name>/

So why does it work with Cryptomator then? Files are written with windows explorer too and have the proper time stamps.

A fix will be available in Mountain Duck 2.6.0.
