    Any way to make this normal? Currently my all files looks like this.


    I want it to look like the following picture, just in date added to view my most recent files. It seems that whenever I do it Lion adds it in a view that lets me see much less files and gives me unneeded dates.

    Look at the time your asking this question. They is currently only 26 members viewing this sub-forum, and I didn't know the answer until just now.

    Date added is extremely buggy and it only works with files that were added after you installed Lion. Every file that was added while on Snow Leopard just ends up in the "Earlier" category in alphabetical order, so this "feature" is utterly pointless until you use it for a few months.
