Sorting by creation date

See attached jpg.
Sorted by creation date. But sort doesn't make sense to me.

I.e., 7th row, 11/26/11 is after 4/7/12.
Seems to me that all dates in 2011 should be before all dates in 2012.

I'd be grateful for guidance.

Those folders are being sorted alphabetically, so you must have Keep folders sorted alphabetically turned on in your folder format(s).

Thank you, removing that setting fixed it.
