    Could use some help in collecting data from a client's Mac
    We have a client where we need to collect data off of there Mac. We typically get data from PC based systems, however, we cam across a Mac. The utility we typically use is Pinpoint Safecopy, however, it is based on M$ Robocopy.

    Does anyone know of a software package that will allow me to copy file from a Mac OS to an external drive without hosing the metadata? Do not need the entire hard drive, just selected files.

    Thank you in advanced.

    Is the drive damaged in any way, or do you just need to access a mac formatted drive in a PC system?

    Mac formatted files. These files will be emails, documents, pdf's etc...I just need a tool that will copy them forensically to an external drive. The documents reside on a Mac, make and model are unknown to me.

    So, in my research, I found that Unix makes an "exact" copy of a file. The only metadata field that would change then is date accessed, however is to would seem that the date modified date created still remain unaltered.
