I have two PCs (let's say PC1 and PC2) connected to each other through the LAN cable. From this connection, I created a share folder which can be accessed from both PCs. However, most of the time when there is a file inside the folder, PC1 is able to detect the file while PC2 detected that the folder is still empty. If I try to copy and paste the file with the same exact name from PC2 into the folder, Windows will prompt out warning message whether to replace the current file inside the folder. If I click "No" and refresh the folder, then only the file will re-appear.

Can anyone help on this issue?

  • Have you tried refreshing the folder on PC2? Pressing F5 within Windows Explorer should do the trick.
