comment bug with rsync changing modification dates even with the -a option
Following your suggestion and this tutorial to upgrade rsync selfsuperinit.com/2014/01/04/… I used the rsync -avXN --delete SOURCE DESTINATION and it works great, all the modification dates, creation dates, etc, are retained, so problem solved, thanks!

@fd0 yep, 64bit kernel, and I compiled the new rsync. Copying with the finder (drag and drop) retains everything as desired. Also this new issue is that the creation date becomes the same as the modification date (in this new case the modification date is correct).

comment bug with rsync changing modification dates even with the -a option
@Mark I suspected that rsync might have to be updated, wich I have done for a test (updated to version 3.1.0) but the creation date (in the case of this new version) is not retained... So part of the problem is solved, now I have a new one. Maybe I need to use different options and not just the -avE?

@ChrisHarrington both are with Mac OS Extended (Journaled), and with a standard GUID Partition Table.

comment Why are the alias so big in filesize in Mountain Lion?
I just searched again in Google, and just got that confirmation. Nice one. For anyone that would like a "solution", here is the link for the discussion: discussions.apple.com/thread/3988292?start=0&tstart=0

comment Why are the alias so big in filesize in Mountain Lion?
@memeLab unfortunately a symlink is not an alias (move the original and it doesn't resolve the link, and also you can't do a symlink of a file!), so that doesn't solve this problem.

comment restore Mac OS Mountain Lion to factory settings without discs or time machine backups
In this case, unless you have a propper install on an USB drive, I suggest doing an internet recovery, your OS was bought and you can use it from apple's site to re-install it: support.apple.com/kb/HT4718

comment What file permissions do I need to change after 10.8.3 restore?
If you go the "sharing" preference pane, it allows you to set a name to your computer. Have you tried that and checking in iTerm?
