  1. By the way, please be aware that the lack of this feature on the Android device gave me some headaches today. We might call it a flaw in the app's terminology, maybe functionality. How? The Android sync app, has a 'rename' option. Intuitively I thought, hey let me rename the sync name and hopefully the new name will appear on my desktop gui. WOA.

My original problem. On a new Android device, I copied all my media files from an older device via several cloud providers (Google Drive, Onedrive, dropbox), using several (paid for) Android apps to keep them in sync. Problem: The timestamps are reset as new files! This kills many features of many apps that need to know the age of the stuff. So, the question: If I get BT sync on the new device, and old device, an
