I copied everything to a thumb drive. On that drive all my original dates are there. However, if I copy it to my new computer everything gets changed to today's date. Is there any way to keep my old dates?

Thanks,
Marcy

Update: Even though date on the computer was today, everything had old date in calibre!! Thanks for the answers!
