I have a question about recovered files. Can you shed some light?

Explorer | Level 3

I accidentally deleted a large 3 of files and folders. I was able to recover almost all of them, however, they all now have the same "modified" date (date they were recovered). Is there any way I can recover the actual dates they were last modified, other than the recovered date??

Hey there @Architecto2018 - how are you today?

I'm just writing to let you know that this is indeed expected behaviour due to a recent change on how the date modified is recorded on our end - it will now retain the timestamps from when you restore - rather than the date/time of the version you're restoring. 

That being said, I'll let the team know about your interest in this functionality - thanks for your feedback on this.

If you have anything else to add or ask, please let me know; we're only a post away!
