Folder and File Date Last Modified (LastWriteTime)

When copying a folder with subfolders from one location to another, Windows maintains the LastWriteTime for files but does not for folders, so you end up with folders with LastWriteTime (Date Modified) with a date of the date and time you copied the folder.

I have a shared folder on the network that i copied from one location to another because of a server upgrade. Everything copied over fine, but the folder dates are set to 10/25/2005 - the day that i did the copying. I use the Date Modified in folder view quite often to know which folder is newer than the other. But since the copying i have to go into every folder and/or subfolder and find out which date is newer or older.

I need a [url removed, login to view] 1.1 or 2.0 application that goes through this folder recursively and updates each and every subfolder's LastWriteTime to be the same as the newest file that it holds inside the folder. Some subfolders can go 20-30 subfolders deep before finding the final folder with files, so the application must be able to drill infinately until it gets to the final child folder.

If you are unable to do this in [url removed, login to view] then provide me with an executable program in any other languange.

I have attached a [url removed, login to view] source code to give you a starting point. You may use it or just totally ignore it.
