#11028 closed Bug report (worksforme)

Sorting logic is broken

Reported by: greatttt Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: sorting Cc:
Component version: 3.22.1 Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version: 10

Description

The current sorting algorithm is simply not logical and causes issues, see attached picture for more details.

It should sort numbers from lowest to highest, not like this: 1, 10, 100, 101, 102, etc

Have a look at the name sorting mode option at the file lists page of the settings dialog.

Why is this not a default option?

Performance. Natural sort is terribly slow. It's unsuitable for directories containing millions of files.

Replying to codesquid:

Isn't that abnormality? I am sure only ~1% of people would browse serve with so many folders and files, which would mean that for the 99% of us, the default setting should be set to mainstream?
