You can configure the Agent to periodically refresh Windows Explorer automatically. By default, the Agent is not configured to refresh automatically. Configuring WAFS to automatically refresh Windows Explorer causes a slight overhead, but it may be important for some applications, such as IIS, which rely on Windows Explorer updates in order to manage their cache.
To configure the WAFS Agent to periodically refresh Windows Explorer
Open the WAFS Agent Manager and click the Agent in the tree for which you want to delay the upload of file changes.
On the main menu, click Tools > Options. The Options dialog box appears.
Expand the Setup and Preferences node, then click Agent Configuration.
Select the Auto Explorer Refresh check box.
When the check box is cleared, if two Agents both have folders linked to the same Job and one creates a file in its local folder, the change is replicated immediately and the file is placed in the other Agent's folder. The new file does not appear in the second Agent's Windows Explorer until it is manually refreshed (e.g. by pressing F5).
If the box is selected, it will alert Windows Explorer and force it to refresh the display.
Click OK to save the changes.
