Sorry I took so long to accept! TeraCopy did the job. I now go no place without it!

@Logman - It's only apparent on this particular partition. My OS is installed on one of the partitions with no issues.

@Logman I can't backup manually because copying files causes the BSOD. Can you suggest a way to backup with a tool that can overcome/handle the OS unhandled errors?

comment Copying files from and to HDD crashes PC with BSOD
The HDD is not 10 years old, the data on it is. This HDD is only a few years old. It is 1.5TB and partitioned into 5. I can't back it up now because I get the BSOD when I copy files from the drive. Are there tools to do this?

comment CMD Using DIR to order directories by name
@NicoleHamilton. Thanks for that information but I have to asked, is it relevant to how DIR displays directories? Is it possible that DIR is actually ordering the results after they're retrieved from the file system, just like it does with the files when I use the /on switch?

comment CMD Using DIR to order directories by name
I'm just saying, that's what I did and that's when it became first in the list in DIR. That was on FAT32. Does that suggest that DIR actually orders directories based on last modified date regardless of filesystem?

comment CMD Using DIR to order directories by name
@Synetech It's definitely a D. I created the folders A-Z in that order. Then to demonstrate my issue, I renamed "D" to "D2" and then back to "D". This makes it the latest edited directory.

@Karan. Yes, the obfuscated directory name after the drive letter is the same for all entries. It's actually inside that directory that I'm running the dir command.

Can you demonstrate DIR with the sort command?
