Having a hard time following this I'm afraid, a few example screen shots would helpful, thanks.

I'm not seeing any of these problems, with either the 32 or 64 bit version!
I see all files correctly read from program files and written to %appdata%\ZTreeWin.

These are seemingly simple problems to fix, but there is a fundamental issue with supporting DMode consistently, because there is no current tracking of the order directories are read from disk (while there is for files).
So while 'unsorted' should literally mean don't sort, I have no option but to do so with directories, and by creation-date seemed the most logical, as it would in theory be the order in which they were written to (a FAT) drive, which seems more 'unsorted' than to sort by name.

I guess I can check the partition type and do creation-date for FAT and Name for NTFS...
