Preserve date timestamp when restoring from SharePoint

Post by robnicholsonmalt »

Using VEX for SharePoint to restore via the "Files" option - the restored files have the current timestamp. How do you restore files with the original timestamp?

Hi Rob

Just run a test in my lab.
Files get restored with the original modified and created dates. Tested with document libraries and a SharePoint list.
I'm testing with the latest version of VB365 V6.0.

If you see something else, please open case with our support.

Thanks

Restoring to document library preserves the timestamps, but not to zip or file. BTW - is there a way to edit the title of a post?

The title can only be changed by a Mod or Admin. I can change it for you, if you give me the new title.

Yes, I see the same behavior in my lab for saving the data as file or zip.

We have a feature request open for this scenario (restore as File/Zip). I'll count your request as +1.
