Windows 7: automatic folders

04 Mar 2011   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit, service pack 1

This is really annoying!

I tried to fix the problem by cut and paste some files in the folders to get it as I wanted it

Suddenly, after 15 mins or so, a lot of new unwanted folders appeared in "my music" with subfolders and just one mp3-file. The new folders were created just some minutes ago. The numbers of folders in "my music" has increased much.

Some of the albums split, like described in last post from me. One example is that it had been created 2 folders of my "bon jovi"-folder. One of them has the original name "bon jovi" and the new folder has the name "jon bon jovi". Strange behaviour by windows explorer.

Its not from the new mp3-files who I had just downloaded in dc++

My laptop with windows 7 I had earlier hadnt this problem, so it should be possible the get a solution, maybe by changing something in regedit or similar?

It looks like it is a refreshing function which creates unwanted folders. This may be possibel to disabel?

Something has to be very wrong in th windows explorer system!

Sorry for my irritation, its not members here in sevenforum who have caused this problem, its microsoft!!!!

Automatic sorting in folders
When I moved a file from one folder to another in my old computer (XP) it ended up at the end of the folder and stayed there until I clicked on F5 or closed and opened the folder again. When I do the same in Windows 7, it almost immediately ends up in alpabetic order. That is good sometimes, but...
