FTP creation time not changing.

Dear expert

I would like to know how FTP works with file modification time.

When you get something from ftp the windows is showing the file is created by yesterday, not today when you received, I mean when you write something to the disk, OS should write the create time is today right? But it doesn't why is that?

I think you should start by checking the timezone of the server.
And make sure that it's correct.

Sometimes depending on the TimeZone, it can have the time of today or yesterday depending on the timezone.

FTP clients can often be set up to copy the date/time from the source file.  Some people like it that way so they have the same time in both places and can see if one has changed.

Well its in the same timezone, I think those create time attribute is created by NTFS Operative system, and FTP server is just a program to transfer, however the files still write to the disk, why it didn't leave any mark? Using Filezilla.

I don't know.  My copy of Filezilla on this machine changes the time when I download a file to the current time and not the time on the server.

The Filezilla documentation says that MDTM is not reliable on some servers.  In addition, Linux and Unix servers often use UTC or Greenwich Mean Time.
