Make modifiedDate settable

My app (rclone) tries to preserve the timestamps on files which are uploaded and downloaded. This doesn't work with Amazon Cloud Drive (unlike Google Drive) as the modifiedDate isn't settable. Would it be possible to make the modifiedDate settable? Failing that could we have a clientDate? Thanks for a great service Nick

Is it required to be able to update modified date outside of your app? If not you can use additional file node property to preserve your timestamp?

Ideally being able to update the modified date outside the app. This would make a consistent interface for all users. An additional property would be a possiblity I hadn't considered though. I assume you mean "properties" : { "owner_app_id1": { "key":"value", "key":"value", ...} "owner_app_id2": { "key":"value", "key":"value", ...}, "owner_app_id3": { "key":"value", "key":"value", ...} That would be a possibility.

+1 for that! Having this would make Amazon Drive an acceptable personal backup solution (as photos retain their original dates) and make the $60/yr plan very interesting!
