Sure. If, at the time of your upload, the files were uploaded in
alpha order, they would be listed that way.

I'm not sure whether File Manager takes them in the order you list
them in the upload utility, or according to size or some other parameter.

If your Freepages account was empty, and you uploaded files one at a
time, specifying the individual uploads in alpha order, that is the
way they will appear in your file listing. However it is much easier
to send a batch of files, without worrying about sort order.

Have you tried viewing in MS Explorer?

You can access your account using the address (in your browser)
ftp://accountname: type="text/javascript">DisplayMail('users.freepages.rootsweb.com','pasSWorD');

Click the headings at the top of the Explorer window to change sort order.
