SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

We have a document library that contains a content type derived from "document set".

When my users create folders through Windows Explorer they create new objects in the document library, and these items get the metadata fields that my content type has, but th "homepage" of the document set is not added. Instead I just get a "folder view".

Is there anything I need to do to correctly convert folders to document sets?
