I want to manually sort (drag and drop) my files in a certain (not in all) folders (win xp sp3).
Is there any fix to do it ?
If no - is there another file explorer with the feature.

You can manually drag and drop files in sub-folders. But within a given folder, the sorting order is either by name, time or type. To impose an ordering, a common way is to rename the files by putting a numeric prefix in front of the filenames:
01 sample file Z 02 sample file XXX 03 sample file ddd 99 sample file aaa
Make sure that all numbers have the same length.
This has worked for me on Win XP-SP3. On Win 7 it sometimes but rarely works.
The order will persist for some time, but will not be permanent.
