Copy files to FTP site without changing modification date

I have a need, to copy a folder structure, from my (XP) pc, to an FTP site without changing the dates of the files that are copied.

I HAVE managed to "do" the above, but in every case, the modification dates change for the objects that are within the folder structure.

I have tried, XCopy, XXCopy, RoboCopy and SafeCopy.

The above utilities work perfectly if an FTP site is not involved.
IE:
If I copy the aforementioned folder structure from my "C" drive to a network drive.
Or I copy my folder structure to a USB drive or another hard drive on my pc.

I'd appreciate hearing if anyone has had the same need, and has figured out how to do it.

Thanks

Is it possible to have the folder in a compressed state? Ie: zip, rar, 7z, etc... or specificaly needing the directory structure....

1. tar the files on your local box and ftp the tar file to the remote box

2. untar that tar file on the remote box

Thanks for the replies folks.

It had not even occurred to me to tar (or in my case "zip") the files before putting them on the FTP site.

It works perfectly when I "do" zip them up first.


Thanks to both of you.
