    Now you have added timezone to v15... can you not make it use the correct date format too? I noticed in backups this morning that it is still MM/DD/YYYY.

    This is confusing.

    For clarity, you should probably not call it "wrong", since that's still the silly US standard date format, and should probably specify what format you're wanting it to be in and where this is displayed. I much prefer ISO format (2017-05-04) myself. But I'm all for it being configurable.

    Any kind of file that you want to be able to sort and easily find should always be yyyy-mm-dd.
    I'm not saying it should be this way on the device - but atleast the backup file name.
