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?
