Handle file creation date / modified date internally

Currently obsidian uses the filesystem information to determine file creation date and file modification date.
This is brittle because not all filesystems support this feature and these dates can become meaningless during file transfer operations.

It would be better to handle those internally and directly by Obsidian.

So…as long as I stay in the Apple ecosystem (Internal or external HD Folder/iCloud/CloudKit) then I do NOT have to worry about Obsidian Sync changing the Creation Date (between iDevices)as described by the OP in the thread you reference?

Hi, I‘m wondering how to access the creation date / modification date of a file from inside Obsidian. Is that at all possible?
