First file in folder
« on: May 28, 2010, 12:10:44 pm »
When copying a folder with large files, like a complete season of Lost, I would like to download the first file (or first episode) first. This can be done manually, but that's quite some work and I think it can easily be done automatically. Most folders have the files listed by name (usually including a number for music and series). If copy handler could copy the files by name this would be really helpful. Is there currently a order in witch the files are being copied? I can't find one, but maybe I missed something and there is actually some logic here that I miss.

CH currently uses order found while traversing directory (it usually means order in which files appeared in directory in the first place).
