Time stamp of the files installed by Install Manager.

I began to use Install Manager recently.
I am in trouble though this tool is very useful.

When the path of the contents library is except for the C drive, the time stamp of all the files (such as .duf, .obj) installed by Install Manager becomes installation time.
It becomes an actual proper time stamp when a contents library is a C drive (such as C:\Users\Public\Documents).
Even if Symbolic link or Junction are used, the result is the same.
I tried in the following two environments, and got the same result.

Windows8 64 bit
DAZStudio C:\Program Files\DAZ 3D\DAZStudio4
InstallManager C:\Program Files(x86)\DAZ3DIM1
Contents Library E:\user\DAZContents\Studio\DAZ Library

Windows7 32 bit
DAZStudio C:\Program Files\DAZ 3D\DAZStudio4
InstallManager C:\Program Files\DAZ3DIM1
Contents Library D:\user\DAZ\Studio\Library

The version of Install Manager is

This is not a functional problem.
However, I would like to know an avoidance way because it may cause confusion in the management of a file.
Teach me a solution, please.

Kind regards,

    I would suggest making a bug report for this - , which requires a separate log-in from the store and forum account.

    I'm not seeing this with, Win 7, installing outside C drive. Are you sure these were installed with .75 and not an earlier version, which did set the time stamp to the install time?

    Thank you for the replies.

    As for the bug report, I think that I should check a little more carefully.

    As for the version, it is certain.

    After that......

    I found that when InstallManager is "run as an administrator", an actual proper time stamp is set up.
    I think that this behavior is strange though I use InstallManager in this method.
