I am going to move a number of Sharepoint Groove workspaces over to Sharepoint wokspaces that will be synchronized with a Sharepoint 2010 server - that will be upgraded to a 2013 server.
If I copy the files out to a folder in my PC - I keep the "modified date". When I copy them into the Sharepoint site - or copy them into a synced Sharepoint workspace on my PC - the "modified date" is changed to today's date. (and I become the person last modifying). Same thing if I copy directly from the Groove-space.
I would really like to keep the original date.
I found http://spmigration.codeplex.com/
- but that must be run at the server and we have outsourced that. I would hope I could do this simple task myself, and then keep control over the migration.
I also found http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/MS-SharePoint/Q_23740083.html
that says it is not possible - BUT
has this been changed for Sharepoint 2010?
or for 2013?
Or must I use a third party tool and involve the service provider?
It is such a simple and obvious thing - to keep the date and modifier.
