However, when I browse through the 'Recordings' folder structure to find
the most recently-recorded items by entering the 'Date' folder, I do not
see the entries sorted correctly by time. Rather, they are sorted
alphanumerically by strings like 'Fri Dec 20 2016' and 'Fri Feb 21 2020'
- which is arbitrary and not a true date sort. Obviously it makes
finding things difficult.
This seems like a trivial problem, but it is in fact (for me anyway)
important as finding stuff by date/time is my primary usecase.
Having read all the guidance I am hesitant to raise a ticket, but I did
look through the bug database and as far as I could see this issue is
not in there.
Can anyone point me in the right direction for my next step?
