    today's date in old file name


    I have just discovered that when copying to a Fat32 partition from a Linux partition, the file date of the copy is set to today's date rather than the date of the original. This is a problem. All is fine if I copy to a Linux partition.

    The fat partition is mounted as /dos.

    Any idea what is going on?

    Thanks,
    Rees

    Smile Problem solved - I hope.

    Update:
    I seem to have solved the problem. Several weeks ago when I
    changed the /dos mount point to a separate partition, the new entry
    in fstab contained "mask=000". I had been advised this to make it
    read/write. I changed it to "noauto,user 0 0".

    I do not know why for any of it, but it now seems to work.
