I couldn't figure it out how to sort folders by "name" in Finder. Now I know, that it's not possible. At least, according to what I think of, when I say sort by name. So I guess I need another tool.
Substrings of digits are sorted according to their numeric value, as opposed to sorting the actual characters in the number.
My task is, to go trough hundreds of folders alphabetically, and look at an image within each folder, and check for errors.
My workflow currently is:
- Copy the output of ls -la into excel
- get the folder names
- copy each row one by one into finder's search box
- check the contents of the folder
- I have a "notes" column in excel, where I can write my results
This is very tedious.
I would like to get the same sorting logic, as within in terminal.
Here are some sample folder names:
ls -la ... 0629e7bc-8110-4db9-aaa9-b67b0b73743d 06a409e1-98c6-4bf4-afa4-c814f7899d82 0a3a5c12-e459-4aa0-b9cb-30b544013215 0c14581f-31d8-4961-a14f-11afc40e47f9 0fe8970c-6338-46ca-bc16-f7867b271480 129855c4-7dbe-4a9f-a100-28b1d3d02340 1522e288-8a81-4298-aefc-f334cb088a53 180d430b-76f9-401f-845a-cb395bc1eba0 1a01a936-bedf-4758-971a-d4886ee8d281
Could you recommend a tool, which can sort folders by name, alphabetically? I've tried Commander One, but sadly, it's using the same logic as Finder.
