Title: Game sorting problem on TED2
Post by: Goemon on January 28, 2021, 06:57 PM
I did run into a strange problem.
My game list is no more sorted alphabetical and I have no idea how to restore that.
Any idea?

Neither TED2 OS sorts directory lists alphabetically ... that would be rather slow with a large directory!

If you want a sorted list, you have to go "Old Skool" and find a FAT32 directory-sorting program.

Or just put your TED2's SD card in your PC, delete all of the files, and then copy them over again fresh.  That usually creates a sorted list of the files copied, as well as defragmenting all of the files, which will make loading them on your PCE a fraction faster.

BTW, TEOS does have a limit on how fragmented a file can be before it will fail to load it.  This shouldn't cause a problem in practical use, especially since PCs try to write defragmented files as much as possible, but it *could* conceivably cause a failure to load a file at some point.
