Windows 7: Libraries RC vs Home Premium

Libraries RC vs Home Premium

Hello all, quick question. Today I formatted my computer and installed 7 Home Premium and I've noticed that the Library functions now group all files into one massive folder. Now before everyone says that's the point of them, there's one substantial difference. In the RC all the files in a library were sub-categorized under a drop down menu specifying their original parent folder. It functioned exactly the same as the "Computer" page in Explorer and its division of Hard Disk Drives and Removable Storage sub categories. My question is, has this funciton been removed, or can I turn it on somehow? Thanks!
