Preserve timestamps of imported files


How can I configure beet to preserve the timestamps of the imported files?

I just found the ImportAdded Plugin but as I understand it, it just handles the timestamps of the library…

Thanks and regards!

Hi! Have you tried the preserve_mtimes option?

Yes, this option preserves the mtime of the file (and the field mtime), but it also uses the preserved mtime for the field added (to the library).

Is there a possibility to keep just the mtime of the file but to have the “correct” time in the field added?

No, I don’t believe that’s an option; sorry.

OK, thanks for the info.
