Is winRAR like the send to->zipped folder?

If you have WinRAR installed (get it here), it is merely a matter of highlighting/selecting the files on the floppy disk, right-clicking and choosing "Add to archive..." (with the WinRAR logo on the left), pressing browse on the first screen since you probably don't want to save the archive onto the floppy disk and then going to the time tab and checking store creation time. Once you press OK the archive gets created.

I'm having no luck, even with the time tab. When I extract it still says created right now.

Yes but it will still save the time inside the archive itself. The problem is that once it gets extracted the file is recreated hence the date gets updated. But if you upload that RAR file I will attempt to copy over the creation date to the file modify date which is tons easier to preserve.

Right, used 7-zip, though I got some slightly odd results. The archive is here: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/3940020/Keen%20Dreams.rar

Thank you! Now the file modify dates are correct and this rarity can be preserved in the way it deserves to be. ;)

Oh file creation date, most vital of attributes. Without you, the game is nothing.
