Explorer does strange things when I open folders on the A drive.

If I put a floppy in the drive and double click on a folder in the right panel, the folder appears in the left panel. AOK.

However, if I put a different floppy in the drive and double click on a folder in the right panel, the folder appears in the left panel along with the folders form the first floppy. If I keep putting in more floppies and opening the folders, all the folders from all the floppies will be in the left panel.

Any insight would be greatly apppreciated.

It's a common problem for all versions of Windows as it does not know you changed floppies. All you need to do to fix it is select View and Refresh, which will update the list.

An even quicker way to refresh the view is to press the f5 key when in the explorer window.
