Auto Refresh not working

Post by dkump » 07 Jul 2018 16:07

I've noticed that the list of files in a folder isn't refreshing. I have Auto Refresh enabled. I've noticed a specific scenario that happens all of the time. I have a folder with 3 files. I double-click a BAT file in that folder that moves another file in that folder to a different folder. The new folder is a mapped drive on another computer. The file is moved, but I have to manually refresh to update the folder list. In XYplorer settings, I have auto refresh enabled including network locations, removable drives, and file operations. Is there any other setting I'm missing, or is this a bug? I'm still trying to narrow down if it's related to the mapped drive, BAT file or other program moving the file, or something else. Any help is appreciated.

Same here, so it's not just you.

I noticed that suspend auto refresh would become checked in the menu a lot, so I disabled the hotkey thinking something was triggering it. Well, I haven't noticed it get toggled in a while but I still have to manually refresh constantly.

This has been an off and on thing throughout the ages of XY builds. :om:
