Arrange files


I have problem with arrange files. When I save new file example from MS Word to my folder, close Word go to Documents and go into this folder I not see this file in "Arrange by modyfication". When I change "Arrange by Folder", then file is back.
Those files is back after some time, eg 1 day. Computer reboot dosen't help.
Even more if I change to "Arrange by Folder" and choose sorting order by modyfication this file dosent show

Anyone know why it could happend ?
