Similar to but more demanding than this question : How to copy files while not modifying the file creation times at all?
I want to copy files between computers without the "Modified" and "Created" dates being messed with.
The purpose is to compare
diffs of some project code in 3 different computers which I had managed to sync when I was working on them. But I worked on only one machine at a time, and now I don't remember which was the most updated one. It's a mess, and I want to unify the copies (and hopefully put it under version control) once and for all.
So when I use
diff tools, knowing file modification dates can help me understand and merge changes.
2 of the 3 computers are linux, and 1 is Windows 8.
Any other ways of achieving the above, any best practices in such situations are welcome.
