Date vs. Creation date

July 4, 2012 at 12:31:27
Specs: Windows 7
In Windows 7, there is a wider selection of date attributes, and one of them contains an [b]original[/b] set of the creation date, unlike just the "creation date" which is changed i.e when you copy a file.

This field is just listed as "Date" in Win7.

Now what I want to know is... How do I synchronize those two date fields? I have a hellstorm of old recovered files that I got back long ago, and their creation date got overwritten in the process.
There's a lot of date changer tools, but I haven't seen one which can process the "Date" timefield, that appears in Win7.
It would be neat to be able to synchronize the regular date attributes with this one.

I am not at a W7 but from that it seems to say date is today's date. Robocopy and the replacement for it may be used to copy off files base on a more advanced search.

Hang up and live.
