Hi all!

I have a webb-server at a customer. Now we have replaced it with a new one and moved all the documents to the new one. Everyting works like a charm.... exept for one thing: On the web they post notes and stuff from meetings, and then they have a searchengine that can look in all the docuuments and then sort them in date order.

 This is really good, but when we moved the files they got new file-dates in windows. Is there any way to move the files from one server to the next without getting new dates?? the boss at this customer is really at my throat for this. :)

Anyone?

One way would be to ZIP them up and then UNZIP on the other server.

Will try this.. Looks good when I tried it. A collegue are going to try this to day (or tomorrow) and then I'll let you know how it went

 Sometimes the easyest tools can do more that just the things you use it for in everyday work.. :)

BTW... Thanks for the quick reply
