DirectoryBrowse element in web.config doesn't allow one to specify so...

It would be nice if one could specify sort order for directory listings, e.g. could say
which would sort ascending by file date and then descending by name
omitting +/- would assume a default + (ascending sort order)
Now it only sorts by name which is not useful if you want to check if something new has been added to a folder (e.g. I'm looking at Transform Manager queue's Finished and Failed folders and since items in there use GUIDs for names it's hard to spot the newer
entries with by-name sorting, whereas with by-date sorting I'd find them easily)

You are right that you can't sort the data. You can include the last modified date which could be helpful in this scenario. Here is additional information related to the
directoryBrowse configuration setting.
