Moving files to NAS Changes Created Date

New to this....I've searched for ages and can't find anything on it! When I move files using Hazel, it all works great, when I move them to my NAS it seems to reset the created date of images/videos to today. It doesn't do this in other locations, just the NAS.

Any helpful theories as to what I can do to work around this? I'm trying to sort into folders and rename based on date, and I'd like to keep the capture date accurate....

Moving across filesystems will result in a new created date. Try using the capture date metadata instead. Hazel provides a version of this called "Date Taken (Hazel)" if you select "Other..." in the attribute popup.

At least I know it's not a new issue just happening to me! Does date taken work for video? It was putting my videos into an odd folder! Thanks for getting back on this - really appreciate it :)
