Need help with robocopy, keeping dir times

I have a bunch of folders and files under "d:\files".

I want to move them to "e:\". And I want everything moved (dirs and files) to retain their times.

I'm using:

robocopy "d:\files" "e:" /copy:dat /move /e /dcopy:t

But the folders that get moved have all today's date.

Any help? Thanks.

Now running this:

robocopy "d:\files" "e:" /copy:dat /e /dcopy:t

and the directory still have today's time.

Any other ideas?

Only way I got this to work was to create another folder (put my d:\files into d:\files\files), and run the same command:

robocopy "d:\files" "e:" /copy:dat /e /dcopy:t

Seems like the top folder gets today's date, everything under it gets its original date.
