Copy file attributes only

I’ve recently bought a 3TB hard drive to replace the now-full 750GB one in my desktop. I copied all the data across a couple of days ago, but of course I forgot to copy attributes, so now all my¬†files have modified dates of 2015 instead of when they truly originated. This isn’t all that important but just occasionally it’s helpful to have this information, so I looked for ways to copy just the attributes and not have to recopy the data again (which takes a good few hours).

I found this – which will do usernames and groups as well as timestamps. Perfect!
