IMO, it's a bit of a bear setting Time/Date on J720 in WinCe on restore,etc... but even more so if J720 is running Devuan.

That latter chore easily disappears with the J720 running Devuan with RasPi Hybrid setup (as discussed in multiple threads elsewhere)... by installing the debian ntp app (in root mode using Bash terminal):

Apt-get install ntp

then set your time zone with:

dpkg-reconfigure tzdata

(Assuming I haven't forgotten something)That's it! On reboot into Devuan with ethernet or wifi internet connection, you will appreciate/enjoy automatic Time/Date updates!

You can use vxUtil on CE to do the same; though without automation.

If you want CE to do it automatically, have timesvc.dll on the device and have a SNTP server, you can:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/windows/embedded/...(v=msdn.10)?redirectedfrom=MSDN

e.g.
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Services\TIMESVC] 
   "Context"=dword:0 
   "Dll"="timesvc.dll" 
   "Order"=dword:99 
   "Keep"=dword:1 
   "Prefix"="NTP" 
   "Index"=dword:0 
 
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Services\TIMESVC] 
    "server"=multi_sz:"tock.usno.navy.mil","time.windows.com" 
    "AutoUpdate"=dword:1 
    "ServerRole"=dword:1 
    "refresh"=dword:48190800 
    "recoveryrefresh"=dword:5265C00 
    "threshold"=dword:5265C00 
    "trustlocalclock"=dword:0

Thanks! I meant to ask if there was a similar CE option. Great, so glad to know, I will give it a try!!

Also, the refresh limit on the J720 Display would be good to know, too.
