|0000121||VisualDiffer||General||public||2012-08-02 04:25||2013-04-11 15:49|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version||1.5.3|
|Summary||0000121: copy does not preserve source file time stamps|
|Description||when i copy files and folders the creation time stamp is not preserved.|
the default should be to preserve the creation date and modification date so that they diff as a match after the copy
|Steps To Reproduce||copy a file and a dir|
|Tags||No tags attached.|
The current behavior copies also the modification date and running a successive comparison finds files as "equal" using "Compare file timestamps" as comparison method.
Please tell me more about copied files:
Disk Partition or device type: hfs? external usb drive? time machine disk?
VisualDiffer uses two different copy methods to speedup big files so also file size is important to reproduce the bug
all i can tell you is that the creation and modification date gets changed on copy left and copy right menu options. any file size. local or mounted.
when i copy a file over and recheck the diff based on time it shows it a miss-match.
there are 2 ways to copy files in unix. preserving the time stamps or not. change your code so that the timestamps are always preserved, or provide multiple copy menu options.
see your own menu - actions>set modification date
this is should be automatically a choice in the copy - not just an after-fix.
Modification date of Destination file is set to source file by default.
I don't do any special task, this is done the the Apple copy routine VisualDiffer uses
that's what I'm saying.
you're calling the wrong copy or not passing the arguments such that the time stamps are preserved.
also it looks like your set modification date function does not sync to the second - just the minute - but that appears to be intermittent
