Hi,

I have a small network (15 PCs) and a Windows 2011 SBS.  One of the workstations doesn't show the most recent files in the Windows share.  But all the other PCs are able to see the updated files in the Windows share.  I checked sync in the control panel but it's not doing that.  How can I get this PC to see the most recent files in this share?  Please let me know if you need further information to help diagnose.

Can you see them after pressing F5?

Can you see them using DIR from a command prompt?

No (same after pressing F5).  No in DIR either.  Now, they just showed up after waiting 30 minutes.  Strange network problems with this PC.  I just created a txt file on another computer in the share and now it came up right away on the problem computer viewing the share.  Hmm.  I'll give it another day and see if it doesn't refresh again on the share.  Thanks!

The problem didn't happen again but it wasn't a refresh problem.  Probably a network hiccup.
