The numbers before the file names in my screen shots are the file created timestamps.

This seems to get (on mine atleast) passed as part of the filename, which does prevent me moving between directories.

Files to look in:


Sorting gets attempted in
OpenRemoteDialog.cpp @ line ~189

looking at the array as soon as its got the remote file list the only entry i can see is: "D/14:01 .adobe/N"
the full file path for that directory should be

"D" - Directory
"14:01" - created timestamp
".adobe" - directory name
"/N" - "/L" is Link, "/N" is Directory

After line 189: arrFileInfo.Sort(TRUE);
The array has "D/00:03 .dvdrip/N" as its 1st element.

So for some reason (on my server) the information being returned is contains the timestamp as part of the filename

For files the format is:
"F/00:13 .gtk-bookmarks/108"

"F" - File
"00:13" - Timestamp
".gtk-bookmarks" - Filename
"108" - File size

so the Sorting on the original array would sort all directorys 1st (which we want) however it then sorts by timestamps which is where the error is occuring. The timestamp should be removed 1st.

Ok, made abit more progress (fixed the issue with WinInet being disabled)

Enable "Use WinInet" to connect to windows hosted ftp servers and disable for Linux Hosted FTP servers.
You will know you have the incorrect setting as time stamps will be displayed.

Still working on the sorting issue though.
