Modification Time (MDTM)  -  KB Article #1487

The MDTM command implemented by FTP Voyager and Serv-U is used to preserve a file's original date and time information after file transfer.

Traditionally, when a file is uploaded to an FTP server, the date/time of the file is set to the transfer date/time. Using MDTM, FTP Voyager can inform supporting FTP servers of the proper date/time to use for the file. The format of the command is MDTM YYYYMMDDHHMMSS, where:

  • YYYY - the 4-digit year
  • MM - the 2-digit month
  • DD - the 2-digit day of the month
  • HH - the hour in 24-hour format
  • MM - the minute
  • SS - the seconds
