I copy a lot of files (entire folder hierarchies) from one hard disk to another, or from one SD card to another. The copied files all get the same date (the date when I copied). The original date of the file is lost. How can I prevent that?

I.e. how can I copy from one hard disc (or SD card) to another while keeping the original file date?

I am using Windows 7.

Total Commander can do this, under Configuration > Operation > Copy/Delete.

You can also do with with Microsoft's RichCopy Utility, it gives you fine grained control of file copy operations.

There is a description of the app here.
