Windows 7 Windows Explorer still shows file on ssd after delete?

Hi

I may have done something to cause this but here is what is happening.

I download a file to any folder and when I move or delete it the file is still showing in the original folder?

After awhile I go back and it is gone? This never happened before I installed a SSD drive as my main hard drive.

Anyone know how to fix this?

Thank You

Are you sure you're moving instead of copying?
Note that Windows by default will copy instead of move when you drag and drop between different drives. If you drag/drop within the same drive it moves the files.

The file still shows as being in the folder. Even when I delete it.

If I try and do anything with the file I get a error. But it still looks like it is there.

This means if I go to a different folder .. then come back to where the file was it may or may not show up. The SSD is not updating fast enough.

Yes I know this. Move or delete it still shows up as it is still in the original folder.

Check whether your Trim works. The command is:

fsutil behavior query disabledeletenotify

You have to get a zero as the result.

Hopeful Fix

I solved this with an easy little fix...
Go to Tools/Folder Options/ General Tab, and at the bottom, in the 'Navigation Pane', make sure 'Show all folders' and 'Automatically expand to current folder' are checked.
With these settings, I can 'fix' and 'unfix' the file refresh problem at will. Repeatably.
I'm sure MS needs a fix for this, but in the meantime, this should do the trick,
