Hello All,


When copying existing folders (containing files) on the Mac it seems to retain the existing creation date.  Is this normal practice, as on Windows it will generate a new creation date for the folder and files.


Using Lion on Mac Pro.


Thanks for your help.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.4)
