Tutorial :Getting TortoiseSVN to set a file's modified time to the timestamp of the latest revision


I seem to remember being able to get TortoiseSVN to set the last-modified timestamp for files to the timestamp from the revision when performing an update. So if someone committed a file five days ago and I update it, the modified timestamp will be five days ago, not today.

Where is the option?


When I go to the Settings option in the TortoiseSVN menu, I see an option to "Set file dates to the last commit time." This may be what you're looking for.

I am not sure if Tortoise uses the SVN client as a backend, but if it does, there is an option in the Subversion configuration file:

use-commit-times = yes  

Sorry if this doesn't apply on your platform, but I'll mention it anyway. It works for those using the SVN command-line client.
