Both, but I am mainly using the xfs. I have a lot of small files. The
files themselves keep their times, but the directories all change.

ls -l shows you the mtime of a file or directory, i.e. the time it was
modified. Did something change inside the directory?

No, nothing changed. Here is what ls -l shows

osr6:/home/zenez/etc # ls -l
total 144
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 32520 2007-11-03 12:03 SuSEfirewall2
drwxr-xr-x 259 root root 16384 2008-03-23 09:47 etc
drwxr-xr-x 153 root root 12288 2008-03-23 09:47 etc.ecom4
drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 35 2008-03-23 09:47 etc.hold

Notice only the directory timestamp has changed. also note they all have
the same time. All the files within the directories have there orignal
timestamps. Only the directories have changed.
