What is the best way to avoid having the date modified stamp change on files and folders when archiving project data? My process is to copy entire project folders from a working storage location to an archive storage location. When the project is active, it resides on a SAN. When the project is finished, it is moved to a NAS device. My process has been and still is to use xxcopy with a script file. Doing this preserves the original date modified stamp on files and folders. The process of creating the batch file is time consuming, however. Most GUI based software will change the date modified to the current date and time the files and folders were copied to their archive location. I am wondering what controls the date modified information, what others do and what archiving tools are available. Thanks for any help and information.

Software/Hardware used:
Server 2008, xxcopy, NetApp SAN, Buffalo NAS
