I have a user that "sorted" a network folder full of photo by dragging each photo and dropping it before another photo. He did not rename the file at all. On his Windows XP, the Windows Explorer shows the file in the order he dragged them, but on any other computer, the file just appear normally in alphabetical order.
Since he spent multiple hours "sorting" them, is there is any possible way to get that specific file order from his computer?
I tried listing them with the command prompt, but the order is not his.
Is it possible, or should he just start over, by renaming the files 1 to X instead of dragging them?
For example, in Windows XP, when you drag a folder, you get a drop bar that appear indicating where the file will be drop. As long as you do not sort the folder, this is the order in which Windows Explorer will display the files and folder for that user.
