Does SFTP (Beta) Preserve Timestamps?

SFTP is currently in beta and is not officially supported yet. We are currently gathering feedback for the new product. Please send your inquiries or comments at


Egnyte SFTP service provides the ability to preserve timestamps when files are uploaded to the cloud from your computer. For this to work, you'll need to enable the option in your SFTP client.

Note: Not all SFTP clients support this functionality in a standard, compliant manner.

In FileZilla, for example, the option to preserve timestamps is available in the Transfer menu as shown below. Once you select this option, uploaded files will be loaded into Egnyte with the original timestamp from your computer.
