I've been searching for the last couple of hours on this issue, I'm sure many people would have asked this before but all my searches are just flooded with irrelevant results.
The issue has to do with optimising folder views, specifically applying to all subdirectories ... it only half works.
The situation is that I have a directory with 73 subdirectories, each subdirectory has one or more subdirectories, each of these has ten or more files but no further subdirectories. Starting from the root I want all directories to have the same view options applied (excluding the bottom most but as far as I know I would have to change them manually, which I won't do).
The solution should be pretty obvious. Go to the root directories properties, select customize, select the relevant "optomize this folder for" option and check "apply for all subdirectories". This works but misses various directories which it should have changed. I know right now I can manually fix the directories Windows misses (though I shouldn't have to) but I am expecting this set of directories to blow up beyond my ability to manage.
So anyone know how to fix this problem?
Oh and I have disabled automatic folder type detection.
