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


The latest Web UI version preserves the date in uploaded files when uploading via drag-and-drop or browsing for files on your computer.


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

Migration App

Migration App automatically preserves timestamps for files. Folders will initially have the date of the upload but will change to reflect the most recent change to any file contained. Get more information about Migration App from the knowledge base.
