You can use _FileListToArray to get a array of all Folders. Use _ArrayColInsert to insert the col for the date. Loop through the array and use FileGetTime for getting time of each Folder. Whenn you use _ArraySort to sort the Array by Col1 descending in Col 1 of first returned Folder in Array is the newest.

#include <Array.au3>
#include <File.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>


Func Example()
    Local $sPath="C:\Program Files\AutoIt3"     ;here your Path
    Local $aRet=_GetAllFolders($sPath,'d')
    if @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_ICONERROR,'Folders: '&$sPath,'Error: '&@error & ' occured'& @CRLF&'Extended: '&@extended)
    MsgBox($MB_ICONINFORMATION,'Last modified Folder',$aRet[1][0]&' '&$aRet[1][1])

func _GetAllFolders($sPath, $sSortBy)
    Local $aFolders = _FileListToArray($sPath, '*', 2)
    If @error Then Return SetError(@error, @extended, 0)
    _ArrayColInsert($aFolders,1)    ;col for Last modified
    For $iFolders=0 to $aFolders[0][0]
    if $sSortBy='d' Then _ArraySort($aFolders,1,1,0,1)
    Return $aFolders
