NewBie -- Need Help Creating a VBSCript to resync folder last access times with Source

Here is my problem. I'm in the process of migrating files from my old EMC SAN to a new Winodws 2003 storage server. This server when into production 3 days ago. Anyway, users have report that half of the folder on the new server are missing the "Date Modified" which users use heavy in my company and yet when I right click on these folders in windows it is showing the creation dates like: October 3, 1617 etc.. Anyway my old EMC has to correct timestamps for these folders... Here is what I need to do..

--- Again I'm not a script writing person.......
I need to create a script to will " resync" the folder creation dates with my new server and not copy any date or change the files access dates on files the have been updated or added to my new server!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Please help this is very urgent

You may want to look at Beyond Compare from http://www.ScooterSoftware.com.  Well worth the money -- the trial may cover what you need. No scripting involved.

The other is RoboCopy from the Windows resource kit. Free -- but may not be able to do what you want.

Thanks for the reply.. From everything that I read RoboCopy needs to "copy data" in order to resysn folder times. I'm going through the ScooterSoftware.com site now...  Which product will just sync the folder dates...???

I just tried the software and unfortunate  you need to copy data in order to resync the folder times.

I actually found a shareware problem called: febooti filetweak that was able to do exactly what I needed it to do. Thanks for giving me the idea to look at other software applications..
