DOpus 5.82 and XADopus - wrong timestamp of unpacked files
I've recently installed XADopus for DOpus 5.82 and then noticed that the timestamps of files unpacked with XADopus always are set to the current date/time:
  • When double clicking a LHA archive its contents are opened in a new listener
  • Therein I can browse the directories, all files have their original timestamp
  • When I now select a file and copy it into the destination lister, the time stamp of the destination file is changed to current date time.
On contrary, when using c:xadunfile to extract the whole archive, the original time stamps are preserved. So it might be caused by the XADopus extension and not by XAD itself.

Did anybody here notice this too or maybe have an idea how to fix it?

It may use "copy" instead of "copy clone" somewhere. Have you tried to contact the author of XADopus? You can check the DOpus environment settings "Copy" where you can set if the source time stamp shall be copied or not.

I suppose you're right and "copy" instead "copy all" is used from inside XADopus.

I've just checked the environment setting you mentioned and it is set to "Copy date from sorce", so this should work.

So, maybe I'll mail the XADopus author and inform about this - but probably meanwhile he is out of reach given the release was about 20 years ago.

I contacted the author a week ago for a question I had for a xad command but he replied that he is not active and told be ciao!!!!!

Then it it might be a good idea to ask for source code and allow that someone can upload it to Aminet. So, anybody can have a look and may fix bugs. At least asking shows interest.

Meanwhile I've found the XADopus sources: https://sourceforge.net/projects/dop...us5.82/source/

Edit: And for about one month it also can be found in Aminet: http://aminet.net/package/util/dopus/XADopus_src

Sooner or later I will have a look..
