Need help with preserving mod dates while transferring from mac to pc
  

I had endeavor and researching the subsequent tribulations on-line additional than might not locate no matter which accommodating so was hoping somebody else might be familiar by means of something helpful. Traditionally I have always utilized PCs so until most recent year I did not own a Mac, even though I utilize them at work. This means I encompass a gigantic amount of files and data stored on exterior hard drives. I at present run Snow Leopard additional than in addition run Windows 7 in inside VirtualBox for the reason with the intention of not the entire software I own is obtainable for the Mac. The tribulations I have are by means of the intention of Snow Leopard and Windows handle file construction and modification dates in a different way. So if I save a file on my Mac HFS+ disk in Snow Lepoard, Windows not be able to read the dates appropriately. I have comprised MacFuse working in Snow Lepoard in organize to have right of entry my NTFS+ disks additional than saving files on there tranquil does not resolve the problem. In recent times I had generated network drive shares to my NTFS disks in Windows 7 so I might to have right of entry them. Does anybody be familiar by means of a way of safely transfer files or a program which renovate files between Mac and PC. I be familiar with of MacDisk additional than would permit resolve the date issue or basically place files on a HFS+ disk by means of the windows creation date format. Thus representation the dates wrong when used in the Mac. I immediately necessitate a conversion tool between the two.

I am pleased to purchase a copy of MacDrive additional than merely if it does what I require. Same goes for several additional software, which might assist by means of the date issues. Personally I do not like Mac OS writing to NTFS. I do not desire the Spotlight and those ".DS_" type of files littering my drives.

You have lots of previous drives working by means of the NTFS file system. At present by means of the intention of you encompass a MAC you desire to maintain utilizing these drives in the identical method. The predicament is with the intention of the MAC is writing the day you copied the content onto the hard drive in NTFS exterior drives as the formation date. Is this accurate if so, I consider with the intention of you are endeavoring to do a Windows thing in a MAC world. I am utilizing Parallels and VM ware. I not be able to observe several tribulations by means of VMware and the file creation dates in moreover MAC or XP. I have generated an innovative files in each, crossed in excess of to the additional operating system and personalized the files.

An apple script be supposed to be able to be generated to give the impression of being at the creation dates on the files as they are accumulated on the mac and attach the date to the file name. (Basic shell scripting)And if this does not run for you, maybe the Linux file system is a superior alternative. I believe with the intention of MAC determine to play nicer by means of Linux. And I be familiar with the intention of there are software drivers to read a Linux drive on a PC. The entire in excess of again, despite the fact with the intention of, creation dates be able to easily change and are no guarantee as to when a file was actually created. So to bring to a close. The entire of my exterior drives are in MAC FS. If I necessitate to copy files to a PC I be able to utilize my innovative 64GB flash drive. (I mean by means of the intention of is a HDD the entire in to itself) If you are wedged in NTFS land, save the files via your Windows emulation. I had been naming the files pedestal on the date and time additional than the tribulations I was having was by means of the intention of the dates and times were not displaying appropriately, so I might not rename the videos. On the other hand I have at present resolved the tribulations. The tribulations were caused by generating shared folders by means of VirtualBox shared folder interface. The later is additional helpful for the reason that it does not require one to be associated to a physical network, in order to transfer data connecting Windows 7 and Snow Leopard.

Most of them are here as immediately to demonstrate you how to do it by means of the least amount of trouble, for the reason by means of the intention of most of them be familiar by means of how Mac users hate hassle. The Portable hard drives by means of the intention of be able to be utilized to transfer data commencing a PC to a Macintosh system contain a FireWire (IEEE 1394, iLink) drives and a USB-based drives or storage apparatus. The Portable FireWire drives make available the fastest relocate rate, and are extensively obtainable. On the other hand, except the PC has a FireWire port, which is not as widespread on PC computers, you determine to not be capable to utilize a portable FireWire hard drive.
