Once in a while I scratch and reinstall my laptop as I have done now to migrate to Windows 10 RTM and among the things I save and restore are my Internet Explorer favorites/bookmarks. I usually access my favorites from the “Favorites” folder among of my profile folders and in retrieving bookmarks the created date/time is for me an important attribute (I usually order bookmarks by the “Date Created” column) so saving and restoring this file information is fundamental for me. What I usually do is compress the entire “Favorites” folder using WinRAR after having specified to store creation time:
To restore saved file creation date/time, files extraction needs to be executed from the command line with something like the following:
“C:\Program Files\WinRAR\WinRAR.exe” x “path to rar file” -tsc “path to destination folder”
the “x” command requests extraction of files with full path while the “tsc” switches ask to restore file creation time.
