Keep file date when changing content

Hi support,

seems like BT will change the file date of mp3 files after doing an inspection or analysis to 'today'.
For me it would be better to keep the old file date, because that indicates the history of file possessing.

Where do I have to configure that to keep the file date intact as it is?

    with file date, I guess you mean the date of last modification, right?
    Well, that's always changed whenever the file is changed.

    I'm sorry, but this behavior is currently not configurable.

    Thanks, Hendrik.

    My regular MP3 tagger "Tag&Rename" I used very often, *has* this option not to touch the date of last modification.
    What a pity.

    Yep. Sorry, but currently not implemented/supported.
