  • A Copy to a MTP-Device change the modify-date to the date of the copy.

    This is also a windows or a android-problem, because with all programs and the windows explorer are the same problem. But maybe the developer of BC have a solution. For reproducing this you must the MTP Device disconnecting and reconnecting, or watching the date with TotalCommander directly on the Android-Smartphone. Because windows will show a fake-date until the device is not disconnected and reconnected.

    BC is a good software, very fast. No other software i know compare folders faster. Text compare i need no often, but its a interesting feature.

    Not all MTP devices would exhibit the same behavior. Many would update the timestamp to the time of the transfer, since setting timestamps on MTP devices often isn't supported. Are there any driver or firmware updates for this specific device?

      Oh, sorry, I missed that this was an Android device. This is an issue with Android when accessed as MTP. You'll want to workaround this by installing an SFTP server, as this software could then preserve the timestamps.

        Hi~
        Can I do with general FTP and NOT SFTP?
        SFTP need pro edition and is DOUBLE the price of the standard one.
        I am a standard license user.

        Thank you.

          You might also be able to use an FTP server. Some FTP server software doesn't allow Beyond Compare to preserve timestamps, so behavior will depend on the FTP server you use.
