Uploading my images from my A7r iii by now does show a strange behaviour.

My normal way is the upload images from the camera via USB-C onto my desktop-computer. You will know the procedure: connect the camera, switch it on, move the images from the camera folder into a folder on the computer.

By now, I do not see ONE folder with all my images in the camera (e.g. DCIM/100MSDF), but many folders, one for each day. I cannot change this, not in the camera nor on the computer. Uploading these folders is very slow. And after that, I have to move all these images into more useful folder. Same problem, which is very new and hardly used.

With my Sony RX 100, I do not have this problem.

My computer is Windows 10-1903. So I suppose, that one of these well-engineered Microsoft-updates (which in reality are upgrades, as all the files are implemented newly) did cause this.

Does anybody of yours see the same effect resp. has an idea to avoid it?

I've settings on the A700 and A900 that allow the date folder format. In fact I always use this and append the contents to the date. My archives (folders) are all by date with a contents description.

My A7 and A7M3 do it as well. In Setup there is an option, 'Folder Name' - if this is set to date format you can set it back to 'Standard Form' to restore what you're used to.

PS. Swapping the SD-Cards between the two cameras does not change anything.

Thanks for your comments.
@HowardS: The "folder name" in settings-6 of the A7r iii is set to "standard format", not to "date format".

Hmmm, I can't think of much more than formatting the SD-card in camera and seeing how things are with folders today and tomorrow. Or, if it's not easy to backup the folders, try a new card that hasn't been in either camera.

I use an iMac and transfer images from card to computer via USB-C cable, but I use Lightroom to manage the process.
