Retain creator/creation date/ownership/etc on folders and files?

Is it possible to move data but keep the original file information? I'm reparenting (moving from site.com/a/stuff to othersite.com/b/stuff) as well, so not sure if that introduces any problems, or even matters. Thanks!

Yes. This GUI uses that object model.

Turns out my problem was with a particular environment. Long story short, the folders and objects defaulted to my user account because the "real" user accounts didn't exist with the same name(s). I tested it in my prod environment and it worked as expected, keeping the metadata. Thanks!
