Have to refresh every time delete/rename/move

Hello everyone,

Please! help me with this annoying Windows 7 glitch!

Every time I delete/rename/move a file...the changes are not reflected in the folder until I right click "refresh".

Is there a microsoft approved fix for this?

That is strange. Sure doesn't happen on my drives. It is a local drive?

I have used "data lifeguard diagnostic" from western digital and it says my HD passes ok. I have googled the refresh problem and other people have reported it.

Hi Firehawkocean,

Could you tell us more precisely what the problem is. i mean, what exactly are you doing in order to see this problem. I am asking since from what you reported in your original post I am unable to reproduce the problem.

So, are you saying that if you open an explorer window, right-click on a file and click "delete" you will not see the file disappear until you click refresh button? That certainly does not happen on my system.

try resetting the folder views. Go to Explorer > Organize > Folder and search options > View, then click 'Reset Folders'

This issue affects XP as well, when using tortoise SVN for example, I have to his refresh nearly every time to see the changes made to the files

Though maybe for some reason on certain 7 machines it's worse than on others.

The folder refresh is a rather lazy low priority affair which is probably on purpose to balance the OS's use of CPU and disk. Extreme up to date information could result in Explorer being unfairly piggish on resources.
