Process Files always in alpha order?

I've played around briefly with the "Process Files" action and it looks like it returns the list of files in alphabetic order. Can I rely on it to always do this? I didn't see it documented anywhere that it does this.

Since v6.2, yes.

In earlier versions, it would always be alphabetical for NTFS file systems, but not necessarily for FAT/FAT32.

One more question

I think this is the case, but can you verify:
If I use the process files action against a set of directories, will it be alpha first by dir name then by file in that dir, example:

A\A
A\B
A\C
B\A
B\B
B\C

As opposed to:
A\A
B\A
A\B
B\B
A\C
C\C
