    I have a share on my Vista machine that I have no trouble accessing from my XP machine and from my xbox360, however - when I add new files to that share I can't see the new files on either the XP machine or the 360.

    The only way to get the new files to appear is to go to the vista machine and essentially re-share the folder, meaning that I need to right click the file, click on share and go through the share process again (without actually changing anything).

    Any ideas on how to get it to automatically share the newly added files?

    Thanks!

    I have the same problem, only its also happening on a windows 7 system with the share.


    As far as i can tell, it works when all systems connecting use the owner of the machines (aka, the person logged in)'s user name to connect, but when they use generic/read only ones they only see the files added before the share was created.

    I've started a thread on a website where i'm a moderator, and linked to here.
    Here is a link to that forum thread.
