Sub-Second time stamps

NTFS supports a resolution of 100ns for time stamps.

Does Bvckup2 support this accuracy when copying files? (even with UNC paths).
On my backup server, snapraid is complaining about all the sub-second time stamps being missing.

Whatever the timestamps that are read off the source files is what gets set on the backup copies. The program doesn't do any sort of truncation or rounding of the timestamps.

If you are seeing lower timestamp resolution on the backup end, this is not due to bvckup2. It's either due to the limits of an underlying file system (on the backup side) or, possibly, due to some component trimming them on the way to the backup volume, e.g. a mis-configured Samba daemon or some such.
