For all my Image files (JPG files from Digicam) I run the utility "jhead 
-ft" (Sets the file's system time stamp to what is stored in the Exif 
header.) after I changed an image (for example for red-eye reduction) to 
make sure that the timestamp of the file is still the date/time of the 
creation of the picture.

I suppose that this is a common scenario for image files, and think that 
boxbackup will completely miss the changes of this files, right?
