SharePoint Folder to Document Set Content Type Conversion Bug

  • You create a folder in a document library or have email enabled a library which adds folders
  • You change the content type of a folder to a document set content type (from the folder properties)
  • SharePoint 2010 has a bug where folders are not correctly converted to document sets.  The following symptoms occur:
    • Folder icon remains instead of the correct document set icon.
    • The Document Set home page does not appear.
    • Other document set functionality is not available via the ribbon.
