"user" shared folder not refreshing properly

I have a problem with a computer connected to a Windows SBS2003 server with document redirection enabled. The problem is a refresh issue when creating and/or deleting files and/or folders. When a folder/file is deleted or added it does not vanish and/or show until refreshing the explorer window (ie right click then refresh).

This problem only happens on the user shared folder (ie \\servername\users\username\) any other mapped drive and/or unc path works correctly, as well as locally created files and folders.

Anyone have any ideas why this might be happening?

It may have to do with the off-line cache, which may be corrupt, or you could be running out of room on the local drive.  To clear out the cache, see the instructions at http://sbsurl.com/csc

OK....I was wrong...Document redirection is not happening....we simply have a shortcut on the desktop pointed to his share name on the server...offline files is completely disabled and this problem is not related to syncing, but rather it is a refresh problem...it happens immediately. Normally when you create a new folder immediately after creation it is highlighted with focus on the name so you can rename it, however what is happening here is the folder and/or file is not visible at all until you refresh the window. Hopefully I am clear this time.

Please post a COMPLETE ipconfig /all from both your server and the workstation.

Also, is the shortcut using the UNC path to the folder?

Well this wasn't a pre SP2 computer, however running Windows updates did fix the issue. (Shoulda thought of that myself LOL)

Thanks for the help.
