Keeping File's Original Access Date when using Robocopy

So I am trying to copy files with all their file attributes including timestamps. Everything seems to be working well when Robocopy finishes until I found out that the access date hasn't been copied. It is showing the date that Robocopy has finished copying. Is there a way that I can preserve the access date of a file?

    Probably not possible without using some third party magic. The Last Access time: is always set to the current system time.
