    I find Windows often fails to copy over some folders when i move a directory of items so i have to repeat the move.

    I wanted the timestamps at the moment the copies were created on date created.

    It's not hard to get suspicious of the OPs repetitious responses which provide no more information than already provided, albeit in different words, and a reluctance to post screen shots despite multiple suggestions/requests to do so.
    Yes, this is entirely suspicious. I think it's time to ignore it.

    I did a little test-and-trial example:

    Windows 10 does not always copy original files list in accurate order.-image.png

    I created asdfsafsad.txt at 1:57 AM in the folder called "2". Then I waited a minute, then Copy-Pasted asdfadfgsdf.txt to folder called "1". Then I see that "Date created" is the correct detail that you need to add to your folder to see when the file was created into that folder.

    Check this out. Now it's 2:02 AM, and I create a new file called qksfsadsjkfhj.txt in this same folder that has "Date created":

    Says 2:02 AM for that file. I am sure this is the thing you want for your folder.

    Like the OP in post #4, you are comparing Date modified entries to Date created entries.


    I think it's possible that the OP is genuine.
    Perhaps, just for example, the OP has difficulty communicating in English. In which case, the OP would need to seek direct assistance in order to appreciate the replies in this thread.

    The original files list order:

    The copies list order:

    For example: "Harmonizing With Harps Green Sleeves" is supposed to appear after "I play Land Before Time" in the files list order because it's 1 second younger but it's before it.

    Is Windows 10 made like this?

    By relying on Date created for your sort order you are allowing the copying operation itself to determine your sort order.

    I don't know how you are doing your copying.
    If you really must use Date created for your sort order then use the built-in utility RoboCopy to do your copying and always include its /DCOPY:DAT switch so it preserves the Date created property.

    You can see its built-in Help by entering this in a command window RoboCopy /?
    Robocopy - SS64
    RoboCopy - MSDocs
    This is still relevant ROBOCOPY - Create Backup Script - SevenForumsTutorials


    Best of luck,

    If you want this exact logic for every single file, then press on Date created to make the arrow on top, point downwards, like so:
