Windows 7: Library folders won't show file deletion until I refresh

Library folders won't show file deletion until I refresh

I have to manually refresh to show that a file is deleted. As far as I'm aware, this only happens in the picture and music library. Any way to fix this?

Have tried to find something that would fix this problem (not having it myself), but have run into that thing we call a "Wall." Really not sure what it would take at this point.

Something you might do is to run a Malware program to determine if that could be the problem. Or, go to "System Restore" then go back to point that this problem didn't exist, and restore to that point to see if that will fix the problem (remember if you use System Restore you may have to reinstall some of your apps). Good Luck . . .

Hello Chaoz,

If you have not already, you might see if a simple restart of the PC may sort it.

If not, then you could temporarily save the files in these libraries to another location, delete these libraries, restore the libraries, and copy the files back. Sometimes this may sort it by recreating the libraries like this.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Have you set your recycle bin to delete files automatically ?

@Shawn, didn't work
@AddRAM, nope

Gonna try the system restore, it'll be a pain though.

Edit: I found an alternate solution. I got the My Pictures and My Music folders and made them to be included in the library instead. I deleted the regular two library folders.
