Since yesterday I am not able to configure Document Library webpart. When I try adding folder structure, and click on "Apply", it just doesnt work. All configurations vanish automatically.

Pls help me with this.

Thanks in advance.

Per my test, this issue happens occasionally.

I add the document library web part in the home page, then fill in the folder name> click Apply, the folder name missing, however the document view will show the files in this folder.

Today, I test again, the issue disappers and the web part works well.

Please try to add the web part in different page then check the result.
