How do I preserve file timestamps during upload?

If you would like to preserve the modified timestamps on your files as you migrate them into Egnyte, you have the following options:

Sync

Sync apps automatically preserve timestamps when uploading from your computer or storage device.

Web UI

The New Look 2.0 preserves the date in uploaded files when uploading via drag-and-drop or browsing for files on your computer.

Data Migration Service

If you ship us your drive with the data to be migrated, we will ensure that your files' timestamps are preserved when we upload the contents of the drive. 

FTP

Most FTP clients have an option to preserve timestamps of files that you upload using the client. Our help articles contains a section with setup instructions for several clients popular with our customers.
