Robocopy : Fix the folder timestamps only (date create / date modified) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, 

    I have DFSR in place but I just received a new requirement and I need to upgrade the folder timestamps (date modified/date created) which have not been maintained by the intial DSFR replication.
    I thought I could use robocopy to fix the folder timestamps with the option /DCOPY:DAT but I only need to upgrade the folders, not the files which have been created correctly with the right timestamps.
    Is it possible to only upgrade the folders timestamps ?
    Is it going to break my DFSR replication if I upgrade the folder timestamps ?
    The file server is pretty large (8TB with a lot of folders) and my boss wants this update to be run as fast as possible...:(

    Thanks in advance for your help.
