There maybe there's a utility to help track transfers and file save dates, but I'm not sure. How important is this (to know the actual dates?)

Hmm... that's a good solution Sip, I am willing to spend time tarring and untarring if that is the cost. Actually I haven't used tar before, do you know if tarring keeps the old files? (like winzip). It would cause me space issues. And can you tar a file that is already compressed?

To tar all the files in a directory:
tar -cvf tarfile.tar *
tar -xvf tarfile.tar
I tried it in Solaris and it preserves file dates.
The other option maybe to export the ftp directory and actually mount it as part of the file system. Then to move the files.

Sip, as always you are on top of giving a useful advice I don't think there is an easier way to do this task. Thanks
