How to touch (copy only timestamps) of files to the other side?

#1 Post by pstein » 25.03.2019, 09:22

Assume I have two folders trees. The first on the left pane and the second on the right pane.
The content of all the files is the same but some of the files differ in their timestamp.

How can I mark e.g. 27 out of 231 files on the left pane and tell MC to copy (only) the timestamp of the corresponding file from the other side?

Thank you
Peter

Thank you. I found your suggestion.

A minor misleading issue would be the naming "...as in target folder".

From my point of view "target" is the directory of the files which should be copied/changed.
But I want to copy the timestamps from it.
So the term "as in source folder" would be better.
...or more neutral "...as in other folder".

I suggest to change the label text.

Furthermore I miss this function as context menu entry.
That means I want to mark some files e.g. in the left pane then right click on them and find a context menu "assign timestamps from other dir".

Can this be added in the next release?

Thank you
Peter
