Sort by date modified not working

Hello, I have a major problem with sorting folders.

I have a folder hat has like 1000 files in it and am trying to sort
these files as usual by date modified. However they are not sorted by
the actual date, but they are sorted by month.

For example; take five files having different date modified information
as below:

aaa.xls 3/10/2009
bbb.xls 3/21/2008
ccc.xls 4/3/2009
ddd.xls 3/15/2009
eee.xls 4/20/2007

When you sort these files, the correct sorting in descending order
should be like:

ccc.xls
ddd.xls
aaa.xls
bbb.xls
eee.xls

However, when I sort them right now, they are sorted like:

ccc.xls
eee.xls
bbb.xls
ddd.xls
aaa.xls

This is really weird. I have done a lot of search on google, but could
not find anyone else having the same problem.

Is there anything you have to solve this?


Thanks in advance.

Corey

Re: Sort by date modified not working
Hi, ktothek.

This is not exactly my forte, but I can make a couple of guesses.

First, have you read KB319827:
The sort order for files and folders whose names contain numerals is
different in Windows Vista, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003 than it is
in Windows 2000
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/319827

The new system sorts each digit individually, rather than a part of a larger
number, so that "15" comes before "2".

Second, have you reversed the sort order? It appears that your small
example may be correct, using the new rules - except in descending order.
