    Hi, so i got all my folder views pretty much setup the way i like them.
    Only to realize i got my music folder that has about 200 + subfolders (artists) inside my "Music" folder all in list view.

    Long story short, i want to apply a specific folder view to the 300+ subfolders in my music folder...filename, type, bitrate....
    But yeah, right before i went to "apply to all folders", i realized all my other folder views would be scrapped with the new one.

    Anyone got any ideas on setting a custom folder view to all subfolders without paving over everything else?? :eek:

    I was gonna try and play around with the desktop.ini, but i think that might be overkill.
    Any ideas...there has to be a app the can do this but i couldnt find anything.

    In short i want to keep all my custom folder views, and only change ONE main folder and all of its subfolders....in theory. :p

    Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

    Sorry 'bout that.
    Good luck in your hunt, perhaps someone will chip in an idea or two here?
