Updated file list not being updated with new version

Version 3.8.385
Protocol used:Google Drive
Windows 10 Pro

Before this version, when i did an update on Google Drive, i could force a refresh by right clicking in the folder and choosing refresh. This would show any updated files in Netdrive. With 3.8.385 the list will not refresh to update new files that have been updated or added.

I also went into the Advanced options of the drive and checked “Always retrieve file list from the server” and it gives the same result and doesn’t refresh the file list.

The only way i have been able to refresh the file list, is actually disconnecting the drive and reconnecting it.

We will check the issue and get back to you. Thanks for your feedback.

If you do not have the problem with 3.7 please downgrade to 3.7 because 3.8 is a beta version and it may have some instabilities.

Sorry for the inconveniene it caused.

Will do, appreciate the update :smile:


Testing this with:
3.8.855 (build 855, BETA) - released 08/02/2019
Windows 10 Pro x64

  • Now you can force refreshing folder using context menu of Windows Explorer or macOS Finder.

I am still unable to get the folder to refresh as stated above using right click and refresh. I have tested this by adding new folders and files to the Team/Shared Drive in Google Drive through the web client and it will not show the new folder/files being added in Netdrive 3.

I’d like to add to this that with last beta version some folders appeared as empty. I downgraded to last non-beta version and this was corrected.

Do you use Google Drive?

Thanks for your feedback.

I am on version 3.8.866 with Google Drive and am having the same exact issue.

I have a shared drive shared between two accounts.
Account A creates a folder and uploads a file to the shared drive
Account B (owner of the shared drive) does not see that file or folder, even a week later. If I right click and use the contextual menu to trigger the new NetDrive Refresh then it shows up right away. It seems the native refresh that used to take place no longer occurs.

It would also be nice to set a “Minimum refresh interval” as well as restoring the previous refresh functionality (not sure what used to trigger it, whether it was changes in files or just timed).

Thank You

Until they re-implement the old file/folder refresh, i have had to use a script that will refresh the folder

create a script or .bat file that will run a refresh every so often. for my needs i have a auto task that runs every hour.

nd3cmd.exe refreshpath “Folder Path”
