Andrew0204 created the issue

When I make new folders within a Cloudfiles container using Cyberduck, the folders it creates are reported by the Rackspace CloudFiles Manager as being of type application/directory. I have been using FireUploader for Firefox for a long time now and have created many folders within containers for my websites and these folders are reported by the Rackspace Cloudfiles Manager as type application/folder. The problem is that all my existing folders within containers that I have created with FireUploader can't be viewed or opened in Cyberduck - it doesn't recognize them as folders. In fact, the Cyberduck info box reports the folders as Kind:Unknown.

And, the reverse causes a problem too. If I create a folder within a CDN container using Cyberduck, the file type application/directory, is not recognized by FireUploader and can't be opened.

Would it be possible to provide CloudFiles options in Cyberduck so that the file type can be set to either application/folder or application directory when creating or viewing folders within containers?

At the moment this problem is preventing me from using Cyberduck, which is disappointing because I find it easier to use than FireUploader.

We follow the recommendations of the Rackspace developer documentation about setting a proper MIME type for directory placeholders. Others should do the same.
