Preserving file metadata when restoring from snapshots


What tools does everyone use to restore files from snapshots to preserve metadata, specifically in regard to volumes with CIFS shares?


Windows Explorer certainly doesn't preserve metadata when restoring via "previous versions," and Robocopy is capable of preserving metadata, but the operations team seems to prever GUI-based processes for performing restores.


(by the way, the label has nothing to do with this - I am not using SnapCenter, but the Community is unexpectedly rigid in its requirement to label the post and limit the available labels)
