Is a version available for FAT16?

A note, on FAT12 systems the Multi Mente file manager and the Improve defragmenter also have the ability to sort directory entries. These don’t work on FAT16 either.

I always use Fatsorter on my pc to sort my MSX sd cards. It obviously accepts FAT16 and can sort subdirectories as well. It saves you some waiting as well.

Tip: For those running some unix flavour and OS-X, fatsort works like a charm.

Oh, nice tip! My Mac likes it Smile. Source code too, some C coder here maybe feels compelled to port...?

But be careful, any failure and you have a corrupted filesystem.
