Copying file dates but not file content

Hello. I was wondering if anyone might have any ideas on restoring modified and created dates to a set of files. We had a share go down and worked off of a backup for about a week. That backup wasn't restored with the correct dates and when the server came back online we used the backup set to continue working and left the original set alone.

Long story short, the files that we're working with now all have the modified and created dates of the date the backup was restored. The original share still exists. How do I get the dates from the original set of files to the restored set of files that we're working with.

Thank you.

I don't have time to test this out but look at using robocopy with /TIMFIX or /COPY:T options. Be sure to test before running it on the actual files.
