As far as I know it is not possible to sort like that. You'd have more success naming your folders YYYY-MM-DD. Alternatively, if the folders were actually created in order, you could sort by Date Created.

well, yes, but that doesn't work for every instance. as long as you keep it zero padded YYYY-MM-DD will always work :) – Matthieu Cartier Dec 22 '10 at 15:46
