Laptop Cannot See Changes In Directory Of Files On Another Computer Attached To The Same Home Network
Posted on 2016-09-13
Hello Experts -
I have a home network to which two computers are attached. One of the computers is a laptop. The other is a desktop computer. The desktop has a very large disk drive - a terabyte model.
I am trying to use the desktop computer to backup a particular directory on the laptop that changes quite frequently.
I have mapped the terabyte drive so that I can see it from the laptop. Since this is a home network, there are no restrictions on the laptop user have full control over the files on the desktop.
But, the problem is that if I have modified the directory structure on the desktop by keying my changes directly to the desktop system, when I return to the laptop and try to see those changes, the laptop doesn't show the new updated file structure. I am baffled.
If I try to reboot both computers, this anomaly still exits. By "anomaly" I mean that the laptop can't see the different directory structure. It is as if the laptop refuses to update the current view of the file structure on the other computer.
Does anyone have any idea what's going on here?
