    I am hoping someone very clever can assist me.

    I have multiple POV cameras... but everytime i remove the batteries, i have to set the date.

    If there a way I can write a script to "change to the current date and time" (touch -t 201107050000.00 ) on a watch folder? Therefore all I have to do is drop the files into one folder on an on going basis, and the files will have the right time and date?
