    So heres the problem, For my movies and pictures i have a mixture of folders and files.

    See here:
    files and folders are mixed together
    [​IMG]

    I usually always right click and select keep arranged by "kind"
    [​IMG]

    to get this
    arranged by kind
    [​IMG]


    But the problem is every time i exit the folder it reverts back to being mixed.
    Is there ANY way to save these changes to always have my files arranged by kind?

    Thanks

    This probably means that the .DS_Store file in that folder is not writable by you. If you can change that, and then set your preference it should hold.
