I am using the VDisk sample for c#.
When a file is copied from the computer (desktop) to the Virtual drive, it calls CbFsCreateFile and then CbFsWriteFile, and sets the vfile.LastWriteTime to now.

Is there a way to get the original "modified date" of the file, instead of setting it to now?

That depends on the application that performs copying. It must explicitly set file attributes (modification time in your case).

I am just dragging and dropping a file from the desktop (Windows) to VDisk.
I am asking how can I set the modified date in the VDisk to be the same as the file's, because right now it sets DateTime.Now, and I wasn't able to find how do I get this date using VDisk sample.
