Why does MS SyncToy create folders with "current system" date instead of "source folder" date?

I have MS SyncToy installed on my Windows XP Pro computer.

I have an external Western Digital NTFS - 250GB drive (R:\)
I have an external Western Digital FAT32 - 160GB drive (N:\)

I have folder C:\Dell that I wish to sync to the R drive and the N Drive.  (See attachment 1)
I ran SyncToy Echo C:\Dell to R:\Test (See attachment 2)
I ran SyncToy Echo C:\Dell to N:\Test (See attachment 3)

The results of the sync are not the same.
The R:\ Drive have folder names changed to the current system date
The N:\ Drive has the correct results.

Why are the folder modified dates different than the source modified dates?

How can I fix the problem?

The cloud. It seems like a mystical place where your photos, videos and other important files float around waiting for you. The truth is that all of the files you save on “the cloud” are saved on a physical server in a remote datacenter.
