The right organization (WE views and a particular need)

<< < (2/2)

Tomos is right. Windows Explorer Although its library functionality is a big improvement, it is not extensive enough for your needs. And with that we enter into the realm of alternative file managers,

Directory Opus is the only one I am really familiar with, so I'll focus on that one. Within Opus you can create your own layouts that you can apply on any set of folders and files. Sorting, different types of columns etc. you'll find it. Together with the manual and an adventurous spirit, you'll find out how. Besides that you will likely discover many more ways to alter your way of working with folders/files once you the the hang of it.

Maybe its pre-configured views already do what you want.

The filesystem of Windows quite powerful. However, support for displaying two files with the same name in the same folder, but a different date is not possible (if I understood your description correctly that is).

I think Directory Opus is the best

IIUC flat view (displaying all the files in a folder *and* it's sub-folders in a non-hierarchical view) and virtual folders cover what you're looking for. Dopus has both. Check out the free file managers, or the cheaper ones - there may be something there too if you're lucky.

XYplorer can do that (Branch View) with its Freeware Edition:

PS: I'm not sure how your files are named, but if you have a date right in the filename (aka date-coded filenames) you can extract that part of the filename (to sort or find files by it) using XYplorer's "scriptable columns".
