    I have my phones photos being saved to DCIM/100Android on an external SD card. Can't remember now how I achieved that - but it's what I want.

    I want to be able to rename 100Android every so often to (say) October and then copy October to my computer. New photos taken will then be saved to a recreated 100Android folder, which can then later be renamed November. You get the picture.

    BUT with KitKat, I can no longer rename this 100Android folder.

    How do others manage to get around this?

    I need to be able to easily manage the copying batches of photos from my phone to PC without having to identify and select each photo.

    Any ideas will be appreciated.

    With KitKat, only the app that owns the folder (or root) can rename it. Resembles a Hoover, but we're stuck with it.

    Thanks Rukbat. I know that.
    My question was to try to find a work around for what I want to do (until Google comes to their senses)
