    problem keeping file column order when copying to different drive


    Hello, I have changed the order of the columns for my files (eg., for music files, I want the order to be title, album, artist, name, etc) and this order remains when I copy within the drive. But when I copy to a different drive, the file column order reverts to some default (name, etc). Is there any way to keep the revised order when I copy between drives, either within Windows 10 or is there a 3rd party software or app that can do this? I would appreciate very much any help that I can get on this. ver 2004 OS Build 1904.1052

    :)
