Upgrade to 3.1.1, then go to Settings -> Configure KPA -> Metadata -> 
Date and in the "Fields to get value from", move 
"Exif.Photo.DateTimeOriginal" to the very top. Then select all your 
images you want to fix and go to Management -> Re-Read Metadata from 
Files, select *only* "Update date and time" and press "Read File Info". 
All your image dates will be updated.

While we do have some code for detecting renamed files, it's best to 
avoid this.
