I just downloaded and started using the Insync Linux client (Ubuntu 20.04) with the intention of using it to migrate all my Dropbox files to OneDrive and then use Insync to keep my computers synced to OneDrive.
I’ve set up a base folder to sync then tried the following:
- rsync (with preserve timestamp) one of the subfolders from my Dropbox folder over to the new OneDrive folder.
The folders and files were uploaded by Insync, but viewing the files in OneDrive via browser only the files retained their timestamps. The folders shows the upload date as the modification time.
- Move a folder with files and a subfolder
The moved folder, files and subfolder was uploaded but again only the files kept their timestamps. Neither the folder or subfolder kept timestamps.
- Tested the same running Windows in VirtualBox with Microsofts OneDrive client
Copying folders caused the timestamp to be changed but by moving folders the timestamp was kept.
Is there anyway to keep the original folder timestamps with Insync on Linux? The other issue regarding timestamp on the forum seems to be about renaming files.
