MS and Nokia were already in bed talking about marriage. But it seems that MS didn't appreciate the new Nokia its vassal created.
Those swiches are only relevant if copying from FAT to NTFS or viceversa. They do not help with dir dates being wrong - defaulted to current.
As I said, strange that I still use a nearly extinct tool - NT Backup - to get a near identical copy of dir trees. And on both filesystems, especialy on NTFS, it is very obvious that and when the tree was copied.
Ghost is also a very useful tool that still does a great file by file volume copy, but it never could do a tree to tree copy on Windoze.
Are you speaking of some other underlying file system date?
Check the directory created date and the "." and ".." sublink dates on FATXX.
Then get back to me.
On NTFS, the dir modified date also gets updated. But that is by design of the filesystem.
Sadly, the only way to, in this day and age, get fully identical copy of a directory tree is by cloning the whole drive. With all other data. While NU could clone dirs easily some 20 years ago.
What about SyncToy? Seems to work pretty well, at least it does for me.
Synctoy doesn't do created date nor automagically sync on network drive / local drive discovery.
Too much manual work.
Robocopy doesn't keep the ACM dates across volumes. So it is certainly not a 1:1 copy.
The only thing that comes close, but still not there completely, is the legacy MS (Veritas) backup utility. And that one is far from automated.
You can have both.
There are even older bugs. Like the runaway GDI usage.
But the unified UI experience tops the telemetry deduced decision making list of moronic google employees.
Obviously a new user.
Things have been breaking apart since the early twenties versions constantly. And rarely for the better.
You are confusing grid frequency with local transients. Those are not the same.
It's a new Webster word. A portmanteau of line-of-sight and on-site.
Last one out please turn of the lights.
Not seeing anything about WPA.
You can pull those truly out of thin air and since they are rehashed 4000 times brute forcing those is slow even on most modern hardware. Generally in the range of a 1000 to 5000 keys per second.
More than a thousand years for a 8 character password. And you can't even use a shorter password on WPA.
GPUs do change the picture a bit.
Oh yes, a original power over ethernet cable.
The fact that this comment has been modded insightful and not funny is a very real proof that the Slashdot readership is far removed from the hot grits days.
You forgot the essential cable...
No toolbox is complete without the etherkiller.
I believe we should "think different".
To me, the whole metro start is just a glorified screensaver. And I intend to use it like that..
