Lost folder preferences?

Using dopus in standard view layout (folder tree left, list view on right pane).

In the list view, I normally select "details." Then I say "only show date, name, size and attributes", and "make this the default for all folders.

I return to some folders and back are columns relating to MP3 or AVI/MPEG meta data (artist, album, etc), or to office doc meta data (author, etc).

How do I make my preference global and persistent?

Thanks. Simple and effective.
