Folder refresh not happening immediately
« on: January 11, 2013, 12:41:35 »
I am using MC 64-bit latest (beta) version. Here when I copy files to folders (local drive or shared network drives), the files get copied but the files don't show up in the explorer pane. Even after I do the refresh button it doesn't show up. Only after I restart MC it shows up. Could you let me know what could be the cause of such a problem. Thanks.

Ive seen this. It seems like pressing F2 works better then the refresh button.
But ive not had the time to investigate more thoughroughly

Where does files not show up. on the local or shared network drive. and what is the shared network drive ? another windows machine ? Linux based NAS ?
some network filesystem does not report back to windows when the filesystem has change so it can be automatically updated.

When you force a refresh it will flush caches and do rescan. It is very strange that it does not show up after a refresh.  I never seen that.
