Windows 7: Folder view

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Folder view

Hi everyone...
I have Windows 7 utimate, with a total of 4 internal hard drives.

I am trying to get the Folder view for different folders on different drives to stay the same. For example, if on drive C: I set a folder to the "tiles" view and then go to a folder on my D: drive and change the view to "details" on a folder..then later go back to the folder on the C: drive that I had on "tiles" view it now shows "medium icons" view.

I am trying to individualize different folders with their own views ( list, icons,details) and have them stay that way without changing.
IS there a way to do this?

thank you

Hi All. Baffled again by Microsoft's incomprehensible format... Set up a quick view this morning, (stupid move) and now cannot get back to my account folders view... so for example to view recently sent items, quick view will only allow me to see all 3000 - everything I have ever sent... WHY? ...

If I change the view of one folder, the view of all folders changes?!?
For example, if I change the view of one folder to "large icons" or to "list" or whatever, then ALL of the folders will have that view. But I want specific folders to have specific view types. How can I accomplish this?
