Actually sort files on your FAT drives



FatDriveSorter helps you actually sort files on your FAT drives

Why does this exist?

FAT drives store files using a raw sort order. It’s not alphabetical, most recent, etc. It’s a purely technical sort order which the user can’t enforce easily.

Some simple devices, such as MP3 players or hand-held consoles, display files without sorting. This leads to a surprising sort order for the user. FatDriveSorter uses technical tricks to enforce a better sort order.
