Windows 7: 7057 Folder Icons displaying incorrectly

7057 Folder Icons displaying incorrectly

I recently upgraded to build 7057, and besides running smoothly all around, there is a problem with the way folder icons display. For example, in my music folder, with the view set to 'Large Icons' (or any setting that displays an image on the folder) almost all the folders display multiple images (the exception being when there is a sub directory containing the music within one of the folders. Anyone else experience this or know a work-around?

I don't think it's a bug, it's because there are multiple tracks with the same album art and that's why you have the image displayed more than once, if you had different tracks in the same folder from different albums then you would see 2 images displayed on the folder, make sense? Try making a folder and just putting 1 track in it and it should display only 1 image on the folder.

Agreed.............some of the tracks probably have the image embedded into them.

Your reasoning is correct, that is clearly why it is displaying multiple images on the folders, but I do believe this is a bug, as since this folder is catergorized by album, the images are the same for all files within the folders. Also, this type of behavior was not displayed under any previous builds of 7, nor under XP or Vista.
