Windows 7: File moved to a shared folder => not visible

File moved to a shared folder => not visible

I'm sharing a folder with other PCs on the network and it works fine, except in this case:

1. file in D:\folder1\ (normal folder)
2. move file to D:\folder2\ (shared folder)
3. file not visible from other PCs

Why is that? Any solutions?

you could try disabling offline files to see if it forces the refresh.
Offline Files - Enable or Disable the Use Of

I would restart both systems after making the change.

Tried that, didn't help.

BTW, I have another shared folder on E:\ and that one works fine, the moved files are visible (for this one when moved from E:\, of course).
Both folders have the same settings, so I don't know what could be the cause..

Let me just specify that when I copy files there are no problems, it's only when I move them that I can't see them on this shared folder on D:\.
