Preserving timestamps of files copied into virtual drive

Is it possible to preserve the (creation, modification, etc) timestamps of files that I copy into a Cryptomator virtual drive?

I have many files which I want to move into Cryptomator before uploading them to Dropbox. But whatever I do, Cryptomator insists on changing the timestamps to the current time. For example, in a Mac Finder, “Paste item exactly” preserves the timestamps in a normal folder, but does not work in a Cryptomator virtual drive. Why?


Unfortunately, I don’t have a solution for you. The discussion, the reason for this current behavior, and our long-term goal with a FUSE integration are documented here:

Solved with 1.4 Beta3 (see github issue above)
