Files Not Showing For Xsan Clients When Uploaded Through Ethernet

October 15th, 2013 by Charles Edge

There is a problem with Xsan when using AFP or SMB heads in front of volumes, where when a user uploads or adds a file to the volume, the file is not readily available/visible to all users. This issue doesn’t occur every time a file is uploaded and nor does it cause files to actually disappear, only to need the user to restart their Finder in order to be able to see the object.

We’ve been using this freeware app as a workaround until Apple comes up with a patch: https://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/24714/refresh-finder
