From the developer:
Some programs need to have files in a particular order within a directory. However, Explorer always shows you a sorted view which will usually bear no relation to the actual sort order of the folder concerned (use a DOS box to do a DIR in the folder and see the difference - providing you haven't used the DIRCMD environment variable to make DIR use a sorted listing). Even when you have files physically sorted in a folder, a simple operation like renaming a file can actually change this order (again, try a DOS DIR before and after a renaming operation). This utility will sort files in one of four ways - by name, by name (reversed order), by extension or by extension (reversed order).
FolderSort version 1.1: runs under MS Windows 95, 98 and presumably NT.
