This seem to only be happening only on build 7048 and 7057 because they have removed the option for each folder to have separate views and now all folder open at the same size, I am hoping they include this feature in future builds but only time will tell.

it will really suck if they don't.
this option exist in XP so to not include it in se7en will be outrageous.

Maybe a reg hack will do the job? :P
