Hi Jacque,

I'd say there's not enough information in the question.

What's the workflow?  Where's the next step for the user?  Am I creating 
this folder to consume the files *right now*, or is it a side-effect of 
some process that will be on-going?

If right now, then I'd say open the folder.  If on-going, I'd say let 
the user open the folder when they are interested in it.

Can't sit on the fence prettier than that, I'd say...;^)
