How can I retain the created and modified date properties of a document which is attached to an email when saving/moving/dragging it into a drive on a windows machine?
I searched around and there are a lot of questions regarding how to move files without changing the properties. I use FreeCommander for file management and I can click and drag files from one location to another without changing any properties.
Moving files while retaining properties once they're in my file mgt system is no problem.
Getting the files out of Outlook without resetting the clock for both the created and modified date is the problem.
I've looked around and tried to;
drag into an external drive first, but windows rewrote the dates,
zip the files, but I can't (or didn't figure out how to) do this from within an email,
use Robocopy, but pointing that to an individual attachment in an Outlook appdata file is more involved than is practical since it would take less time to rewrite the properties after I've moved them (which is what I do now).
drag the entire email into a folder before pulling the attachment, but windows reset the clock anyway.
