Question..
Is possible to dig "real" access time of file copied from remote server and using it by including from another script?

What I need.
I need to know which files on server are unused/untouched for long time, but I have only ftp access, so I must download files. Curlftps not solve this.
And what about files only included from another file, for example include in php script? Does included file change his access time when is accessed by include from another script?
Edited. Tested included file access time change, it change access time when file is "touched" by include script.

Tested
When I copied the file, there was quite strange access time, file should be accessed very often.

Thank you.

Edited.
Just info, that when I connect via sshfs or curlftps, seems that display right access date, but time is only at 0, which is ok for me. Is this date real or am I wrong? And is Access time "real"? Thanks.
