I'm guessing you're referring to DFS Namespace client failback.  (If not, disregard what follows.)  The only reason you would enable/disable client failback on the individual folders is to override the setting at the namespace root.  Otherwise all of the folders in the namespace will inherit that setting.  There's a little more info (but not very much) on that here.
