When you open a network share by using a previously created shortcut in Windows Vista or in Windows Server 2008, a newly created file or folder in the network share does not appear until you update the screen
Consider the following scenario:
- You create a shortcut for a network share in a Windows operating system that is earlier than Windows Vista, such as Windows XP.
- You upgrade the operating system to Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008.
- You open the shortcut in Windows Vista or in Windows Server 2008, and then you create a new file or folder in the network share to which the shortcut points.
In this scenario, the newly created file or folder does not appear until you update the screen.
