We are in the process of upgrading our development machines from Windows 7 to Windows 10. We have noticed an issue on the machines that have already been upgraded: The file creation date is not being preserved when getting files from the depot to the client. There is no error displayed. This is not an issue on the Windows 7 machines.

This is important to us because we are contractually required to include the file creation year and modification year in the copyright statement at the top of each file. This is done automatically using tools that depend on the language of each file.

Our P4V client version is 2012.3.

Try setting "modtime" on your client workspace.  Note that P4V is free; if you are not already doing so, use a P4V that matches your server.
