How to backup a directory while preserving the modified date?

    I need to format my computer very soon and was wondering how I can backup a
    directory while preserving the modified date? Reason is because I'm running
    an FTP server and I need for my users to be able to see the dates last
    modified. I just want to be sure when burning onto a DVD that the dates
    don't get changed. Thanks in advance.

    Magic File Renamer has an 'attribute setter' feature which enables you to
    change the date to whatever you want.
