BRU 'sees' an older version of my files

Postby avarenne » Sun Apr 12, 2020 2:23 pm

Hi all,

I absolutely LOVE this utility , btu I came across avery surprising fact ...

When opening BRU, it shows an OLDER version of my files. Of course, I refreshed everything, still no effect.
Worse. I can rename all I want in BRU, the modification do NOT show in Windows (10 64bits) afterwards. Of course, refresh here also. Doesn't help.
Blankly: BRU becomes of nu use at all :(

Does anyone have a clue ?

Thanks in advance !

Could you explain - with examples?
Are you using, 14:Special -> Change File Timestamps?

Hi,

The problem definitely seemed to be on the Windows side ! I found a workaround:
- refreshing the tree in XYPLORERn
- re-opening BRU and everything was ok.

One more mystery to add to the already enormous volume called "Why does my computer live a life on his own" ;-) Thanks for replying !
