First of all thanks for this software - small, simple, easy to use, elegant.

But all software has bugs, and this one is no exception. :)

When you download an archive, it preserves datetimes/timestamps on the files, but not on the folders themselves.

Ultimately minor, but I noticed it (I pay attention to preserving metadata when moving files - proper archiving discipline and all).

HFS v2.3m

Hi, welcome to the forum! :) thanks for the report, but I have some question: what do you use to download an entire folder? Are you using the TAR archive feature? Because I haven't heard of another way to download entire folders. Please provide more details on how you download folders...

Archiving works for you? I've tried different browsers on different machines and I get the same behavior, as soon as I click 'OK' to create the .tar file I get a page of raw HTML. Sorry to steal your thread, but since nobody posts here very often I thought this would be the best approach.

Thanks,
