    What do you mean by 'accurate order'?

    When I copy files lists in descending date modified, the files lists is copied inaccurate order in ascending date created. I don't if it can be solved.

    Files in the destination folder will be displayed (initially) in whatever you have selected as the default folder view.
    Just go to that folder and select the sort order for display as 'date modified' and 'descending'.
    Then they display in the order you want, correct?

    In the destination folder when it is sorted in ascending dates created there are files with more recent dates created that appear before files with older dates created. It happens when I copy files lists from a source folder to a destination folder.

    Well I am not sure I believe that. You need to show a screen shot of where windows is erroneously sorting files by create date in a folder.

    What method/program do you use to copy? What program are you using to view the list of files? What are that program's column header/names on display?

    EDIT No matter what the pre-copy sort order is set at, post-copy files will appear according to the settings of the destination. E.g. files sorted in date order, copied to a destination set for alpha order will display the files in that latter order.

    You're going to have to give us more information .....

    EDIT Sometimes you have to do a little work yourelf. If you copy files listed in ascending order, and they come out in descending order, all you have to do is click the column header for the sort order. That will alternate between forward sort <> reverse sort. Applies to any column header.

    Does it work for you?

    Is it in right order?

    The files might just be like 1 second older or more recent than some other files in ascending dates created.

    Oh dear, what??? You'll have to give us some specific examples because now, I don't know what the hell you're talking about.
