Sync left pane in Windows 7 Explorer with the opened folder

When using the explorer in vista (and xp) if I drill into a folder in right pane of explorer, the folder view stays synchronised. However in Windows-7 I cannot see a simple way of forcing it to do the same.

Under the "Folder and Search Options" accessible from the "Organize" menu, there is an option to "Automatically expand to current folder". I believe this is the setting you are looking for.
