Hi Experts,
                 There is a repository of images on a windows PC containing 1000s of images. Some of these images, maybe 100 change everyday, which is an automatic process with no intervention.

The repository of images needs to be reflected to my server which runs PHP, SQL etc..

What I need to be able to do is to send the changes to my server.  In other words I would like to be able to send the timestamp of the local image and compare it with the timestamp of the remote version of the image, if a change has occured I would then overwrite the server version with the local version.

I dont mind opening a webpage to instigate the image updates, but what I cannot do is search for the changed images manually as that would take a very long time.

Is this possible, maybe with HTML5 or even PHP/FTP ?

Many Thanks, ChrisColeman.
