Hi all,

this is a small problem I encounter while using rsync on NT (client and
Whenever I need to restore files and folders from tape back to the
destination server (for instance when changing hardware), Windows NT
behaves in such a way that the modified times of the files are respected,
but folders receive a modified time of the moment that they are recreated.
This presents quite a delay in time during the following sync: all the
folder attributes need to be synced again.

Is there any way to prevent this from happening, in other words: can you
have rsync ignore folder modified times?

Thx already,
