I created an NTFS logical volume on my Linux system for Windows file storage because I want to retain the creation date of my files (I would probably zip them into an archive and then unzip them, though I have no idea if that would work). Does NTFS-3G save the creation date of files on Linux? If so, how do I access it?
Reading this thread, the OP links documentation on NTFS that provides a shell script for finding the creation date. I modified it in an attempt to get the seconds from the hex value, but I believe that I am doing something wrong:
#!/bin/sh CRTIME=`getfattr -h -e hex -n system.ntfs_times $1 | \ grep '=' | sed -e 's/^.*=\(0x................\).*$/\1/'` SECONDS=$(($CRTIME / 10000000)) echo `date --date=$SECONDS`
