Keep original timestamp on build artifacts during artifact download?

I am currently evaluating Bamboo for my organization and have build several test build plans along with deployment projects.  BTW, this is in a Windows environment

It appears that in a deploy environment the download artifact task does not preserve the date/timestamp of the build artifact(s).  Is it somehow possible to get around this so that when the build artifacts are copied to a folder on the target environment they have the date/timestamp from when they were successfully built?

Bundle the deployment artifacts in a compressed zip file, then when you unzip it the target files will have the dates preserved. It also helps to lessen the transfer time if you have the files compressed.

Hi Shari.  Yes, I tried your method and it works great.  Thank you!

Hi @Ray Hundley,

When you download an artifact, it gets created in the destination directory, just like what happens when you create any file, and this created file will have the current date.

Kind regards,
