    • Sorting Order When Requesting Files from the File System

      Hello,

      Is there a way to set the order in which FS_FindFirstFile and FS_FindNextFile return the found files? It seems that the files are always returns with the oldest file first, but I would like to have it return the newest file first. Please see attachment. The first directory list is how the order is normally returned by the functions, but I would like to be able to get the second directory list order. Thanks!

    • Hello,

      FS_FindFirstFile() and FS_FindNextFile() always return the directory entries in the order they are located physically on the storage device. Any other ordering will have to be implemented in the application.

      Best regards,
      Marius
