Does anyone know how to change the way Windows 7 sorts it's file structure?
When I was using Windows XP i had to do a regedit to match Windows 2000.
Example:
1
12
123
1234
12345
Thank you
Scott

I think I see it now after messing around. Try this, it works for Windows XP and Vista. And I know Windows 7 is very similar to Vista.

This was fixed using either the registry setting or the group policy setting.
