#4864 closed defect (duplicate)

WinXP guest loses modification date when copying a file on a shared folder (Linux Jaunty, ext3 filesystem)

Reported by: Guy Dalberto Owned by:
Component: guest additions Version: VirtualBox 3.0.4
Keywords: shared folder Cc:
Guest type: Windows Host type: Linux


When copying a file with Windows explorer, we expect the modification date of the copied file to be the same as the modification date of the source file (and be different of the creation date).

It works OK on :

+ the C: virtual drive + an external USB drive + a network Samba drive (accessed trough VPN)

When copying a file on a local shared folder (guest Linux jaunty, filesystem ext3) the modification date is set equal to the creation date.
