Thread: File creation time - How to get?

    File creation time - How to get?

    I would need to get the original creation date of a file. The file is originally from a windows server on NTFS and the file was copied to Linux etx2. I can only find functions that let me see the date the file was modified or changed. Does the creation date get destroyed when the creation is modified or changed or is there the information left somewhere?

    Linux filesystems don't store the creation date.

    # stat <filename>
    will provide the last access and modification times.
