Retaining file attributes

When I upload files to a company's server the date of last modification is set to the moment when the transfer completed. This makes it impossible to compare the age of files I am uploading with other files on the company's disks.

Is the modification date being controlled by SmartFTP or is it something in the way the company has set up their ftp site?

If it is something to do with SmartFTP how can I adjust the settings so that the files modification date will be preserved when it is uploaded?

Many thanks.

Hello ..

If your server support the MDTM command to set the file time and you have enabled the "Keep File Time" option in the SmartFTP settings (Settings -> Transfer -> Files) the file time will be set. The problem is that most FTP servers especially under *NIX don't support the feature to set the file time.
