How to use 'cp' as a simple but reliable backup tool
Authored by: bglnelissen on Feb 17, '10 10:11:00AM

Is cp 'touching' the files as it goes along your disk or does the original timestamp stay in place?

touch = Change file timestamps, change the access and/or modification times of the specified files
