backup to external HD, keep folder Create date?

This isn't a Suggestion but a question; my apologies if in the wrong forum. Can someone clarify please?
I have been backing up files and folders from my old computers to multiple external hard drives.
It would be so nice to keep the Folder's original Create date/time when copying to the external drive.
Does the current version of Synchronize It! have this capability built-in?

The old computer hard drives still work, and I'd like to make one more copy on another external hard drive, so I can sort the combined folders by Date created. I'm not concerned about the "Last modified" date.
I've been using the free version for about a decade it seems - it's great! If this feature works, I'm ready to upgrade. Thanks.

Yes of course SI can do this, it even keeps folder dates. Otherwise it would not be true synchronization.

Actually SI makes the truest copies of any synching program on the market, since it also can truely transfer sparse files, attributes, NTFS permissions, streams, and junctions.

An upgrade is really worthwhile, since SI has grown a lot in recent versions.
