After I created folder to grouping several connections, it content has been unavailable on next application start. Heidy displays this folder as normal connection, but not as folder. And now I cannot access to several real DB connections which stored in this folder.

Did you downgrade your HeidiSQL.exe to an earlier build? Or probably you have two different build revisions in use?

I'm using single Heidy build, which upgrades with replacement of .exe
First it was 4168 Heidy's build and there were no folders.
Than I upgraded Heidy up to 4172 and created 1 folder and dropped several existing connections to it.
After this, I checked new Heidy version and installed build 4174. When Heidy started, I saw that folder looks as connection. I downgrade Heidy down to 4172, but nothing happened.

I'm sorry, this seems to be a bug in r4172. Please upgrade as soon as you find a newer build via updatecheck.

In the meantime, do the following:
- Exit all heidisql.exe instances
- Start regedit.exe
- Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\HeidiSQL\Servers\[Your new folder]\
- Verify that there is a numeric value called "Folder" with a "1" in that folder. If not, create it via righclick > New > DWord, 32 Bit.
- start HeidiSQL and watch out for the folders in the session dialog

Nice, glad to hear that.

The question remains if there is a bug at all, or if that happened due to a downgrade to some pre-4172 build.

I've several folders and I could connect perfectly to my servers.

But after upgrading to r4174 I can't use the quick connect any more.
Before when I pressed the arrow I got:
Folder1\Server1
Folder1\Server2
Folder2\Server3
...

But now I'm getting:
Folder1
Folder2

The session manager still displays the folders and underlying servers correctly.
The Folder setting is set to 1 in Windows Registry.

Fixed in r4175 . Please update immediately, as this was causing folders to be turned into sessions, so you could not access sub folders or sessions within that folder any longer.

Hello, I'm using portable version V.7.0.0.4208 and I had the same problem.

Adding the "Folder" key to the registry entry fixed the issue, however creating new folders still displays them as sessions.
