cut and paste issue

Hello,

every time i cut and paste a file/folder. i have to refresh explorer for the file/folder to disappear.


example: i cut a file from folder A and paste in folder B. the file does get moved to folder B. However, i can still see the file in folder A, i need to refresh for it to go away.

is there a way to fix this? is this normal?

using windows 7 32bit (retail) fresh install.

thanks in advance
regards,

this happened to me with other systems. i read somewhere that is it s drive issue (sorry dnt remember where so do not have a link) try updating your drives if you have the same issue and hopefully it will solve it.

Hi homamkeh, sorry that no-one replied

One thing you could try is to reset your folders...

Open explorer, click 'Organize' then 'Folder and Search options' and in the 'View' tab click the Reset folders option.

Copy and Paste Issue
I love Windows 7, and I really like the confirmation prompt that W7 showed me when copying files from one folder to another. HOWEVER, somehow, someway, W7 now copies the files to the destination folder, no prompt, and creates copies of the files instead. GRRRRRR..........! any ideas?
