yes, but what I mean is in this setting:

X (folder)
+-- Y (folder)
+-- Z (folder)
+-- f1 (file)
+-- f2 (file)

f1 and f2 are sorted (i.e.rearranged) by date when I select "sort by
date" on X (or on the treeview header), but Y and Z are not.

What I'm trying to do is get the folders which were last modified at the
top of the tree :)
