Maintain original file creation date

I'm moving 700GB of data to a new hard drive, and the client wants the original file creation dates to remain intact.  Any ideas on how to prevent the creation date from changing to the date of the move?

If the creation dates are the same, you could change the date on the receiving server to match whatever they want it to be, then copy the files.

Here is more info on why the dates change:

Looks like you should MOVE instead of COPY and it may work out.
