Re: dates on share
Unix has a concept of multiple times. Access time, Modified date,
Created time, maybe more. Samba coming from windows linage probably only has
one date/time field and depending how you copy depends on which field the
date is inserted in.... maybe?
man ls and search for 'time'. You can ls a file and display it's many
different time stamps or try:
ls -la --time=atime filename -> show time file last accessed
ls -la --time=ctime filename -> show time file was created
ls -la filename -> show time file was last modified
This also depends on the underlying filesystem and it's capabilies.
