File Creation date keeps changing to saved date

I'm trying to figure out why everytime I save an nx file the windows properties of that file shows the creation date as the saved date.  Thanks.

 

Edit:  After some more testing it appears this may have something to do with our server.  Local files don't do this.  Only files that I'm saving elsewhere on the network.

NX is always creating a new temporary file and if the save operation succeeds, the original file will be deleted and the temporary file gets renamed.

There is no way to keep NX from doing this.

Yes, but in the past the file has always shown the original creation date.  It makes sense for a backup file to exist during the save process... but wouldn't it make sense for the file to show the original creation date.  I know in the past NX worked this way.
