Windows 7: Files doesn't automatically sort by name in folder

Files doesn't automatically sort by name in folder

Hi again.

I just bought a new 1TB drive. On my previous drive, everytime i (i.e) copy/paste files to that directory, it automatically sort itself out by Name. Now, it does sort by name but not if i don't click refresh or navigating to another folder and coming back to that directory. I've set it to sort by name. Is there something that's missing?

Thank you.

I've got it sorted. Apparently, it doesn't automatically sort if it's in the main drive itself (K. If i have another directory (K:\Storage), it works flawlessly.

Reported to mark as solved.
