Filter and order folders by the date of original creation time

I would like to obtain a list of folders by the creation date in the original pc where they were created.
Additionally go to different levels in a tree. Even choosing the subfolders i wish more details . Custumizable.

Best Regards

Unless I misunderstand you, in Windows Explorer, right-click the column header area and enable the "Date created" column.  Sort away.

No. It's not so simple when you filter also.
And not a folder. A selective tree of folders and a depth level.

So you want folders, but no files - in a 'flat' view where they can be sorted by created date?

How can i do that ?. The flat view is very useful for me nowdays for filtering files from several folders.

Did you not get Directory Opus recently?
Or are you still on Windows Explorer (or whatever they call it these days)?

I dont know if you can filter for just folders in Dopus, I suspect you can - but first: do you have it?

I haven't. Dopus is the more powerful program indeed.
I stay in windows explorer with "addons".

Wouldn't this suffice?

dir /od /t:c /ad

You can add any wildcards you like.

It doesn't really cover the "Even choosing the subfolders i wish more details" bit.

You're right, I concentrated on the expression "to obtain a list". If this should be interactive, then the command line is of no use. However, adding "/s" would list the subdirectories.

Sure. I have done in my life about 254 projects. Less sure. But at the beginning i don't use a code. The last one is 254.14
A folder like 254.14 has some folders inside and files.
The .14 correspond to the year, and the resto to a sequencially number.
I begin years ago in the 125 number.
But before that number I usually uses a descriptive name in the folder like : Activ Properties
Some of the old projects are in the folder CUSTOMERS inside the PROJECTS Folder with the numbered works.
I usually do only one project by customer, but i have one i made many.
So this one have a special folder : JOVI and some projects inside this folder.

What I need is obtain a list of the folders by its creation data.

I have move along the years one folders to one pc to another so I observed the modification date is not the creation date and now don't remember how to see the creation date of the work.

Once I have the folders in order i can create shortcuts to renumbered the old ones from 125 to the first. Probable i will not reach the number 1.

So the original creation time is not present in the NTFS Created date of the folders, but only in the folder names? And the problem is *sorting* them?
