When a user's My Documents folder is redirected to a DFS share, Windows Explorer requires a manual refresh after creating a new folder, file, etc. Interestingly, the manual refresh is not necessary when making a new briefcase.
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, e.g.
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?
