I noticed that the downloading process preserves
Content Creation Date
Date Last Saved
but the Date Modified is the date the file was copied.
Is the Date Modified supposed to be the copy date or should it be the same as the Date Last Saved?
It would be useful to preserve the Date Modified same as on the server because this would indicate the "posting date" (the date the owner last posted the document).
Is there perhaps an option to handle this?
We have a simple utility to assign modification dates to the files where it is possible:
I think it makes sense to have at a minimum the option to retain the modification date of the file in the source location rather than updating that date to the current date/time.
In our business we may be presenting the documents to a government auditor in defense of a tax claim. So it is useful to be able to indicate to the auditor when the file was posted to the site. Of course Last Saved date is the most important date in this regard.
