Loss of date and time on battery change

\015 Changing batteries on my fuji s6500fd results in loss of date and time info, which needs to be reset when new batteries are fitted. This has only recently occured. What retains this data in memory?\015

Answers :

This is not a solution, however I have the very same problem, and as previously described, the problem have started recently after about two years. What make me think that there is an additional internal battery which died, similar to a PC battery that keeps the date and some other stuff
