Copy folders including timestamp

Hi everyone,
I'm in search for a tool to copy several folders to another computer including the given timestamp.
I would appreciate a solution just like
"Context Menu - Copy Folders including Timestamp" to make copy-process easier.
Is there anything on the market?

Thanks for the hint to ROBOCOPY - I knew that before: My primary aim is to add ROBOCOPY to the context menu - perhaps under "copy" as "copy with RB". What do I have to do?

Those sort of settings would be controlled within ROBOCOPY. You would need to run the app then check the settings to see if there's anything that controls context menus.

You could add it manually in the registry at HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell
or use the easier way:
Try the Context menu editor. Just don't forget to set all the switches you want in the command line
