    Post Folder Redirection - Explorer Requires Refresh When Creating New Folders // Files.

    Hello,

    (I did notice a thread form a while ago posted by Duke, but after being in contact with him, he is still experiencing this issue. So I thought I would ask you guys again.)

    I am having an issue where - when a users my documents folder is redirected to a DFS share, windows explorer requires a manual refresh after creating a new folder, file, etc. (Interestingly, not when making a new briefcase)

    I have tried a number of MS knowledge base articles, a hot-fix and a registry change, all with no success. (( http:// support.microsoft.com/?kbid=823291 ; http:// support.microsoft.com/kb/873392 ))

    The problem only occurs when going through the my documents icon. If I map a home drive for the user to the exact same location (IE - H:\DFS\user\documents) , open that drive and make new folders, then there is no problem.

    Mapping my documents to H:\ also resolves the issue, however, as we need folder sync and people logging on off site with cached profiles this is not a workable solution (as H: will not map and there will be no access to their docs.)

    Has anyone managed to figure a fix for this?

    Thanks,

    Pete.
