An issue when I 'transfer' a folder from the host to the client under this function, it used to update the client directory date with the date of the transfer OR the date of the directory/file that was copied to the client. Recently I have noted some but not all directories do not change the date of the top directory level although the subdirectory files are updated with the date of the copied files within the host directory. Consequently, I cannot rely on viewing the date of the client directory(s) as displayed and each (of which I have many) have to be opened 'post transfer' to confirm the update. the other method I have used to confirm an update is to try the transfer function and if the directory/files within are the same the message "these files are up to date" displays. Neither of these are time effective. Using the 'sync' function is not the best method for me and there are often files within the directoy on the client that I do not wish to copy to the host server.


Is there a solution to this problem?? thanks

Hi,

A NAS drive is a Network-attached storage drive.
