When creating data view web parts in SharePoint Designer, and dealing with libraries or lists that contain folders, the Item and Folder Scope setting becomes pretty important. In SharePoint views, it’s always possible to create a new view of the list with no folders, by configuring the “Folders” section in your view settings. Unfortunately, the same functionality is not as obvious in SharePoint Designer. When you create a view with no folders, and then convert it to XSLT in SPD, the folders always reappear.

This short video is a visual walk-through of my previous article, Data View Web Part, The Basics – Folders. In this session, I show how to display all files within a library, even when those files are stored in multiple folders.
