Refresh folder PcManFM

Asked by Stefano Gurrieri on 2014-04-04

I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
File Manager installed: pcmanfm 0.9.10-0ubuntu2

I have done this test:
I take a USB stick
I insert it in my Desktop PC (OS: Windows 7)
I copy in my key some files (folders, files)
I eject the USB key from my Desktop PC

I insert the USB key on my laptop PC, with Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and pcmanfm as file manager:
...when I open the file manager I see the point mount folder in /media, BUT I don't see the new files just added. Just after I press "F5" key from my keyboard (basically only after I have done a refresh), I can see these new files.

Someone can help me to understand?

I mean that I remove my key from Desktop PC (unplug it).
The strange thing is that when I plug the USB key on my laptop PC (with Linux), under /media/usbname I don't see this new files. Just after have done a refresh. But if I open a terminal and I do: ls /media/usbname --> I see these files.

Do you use the safe remove feature in the OS before you physically unplug the device?
This needs to happen for things to work as expected

Yes yes sure. I do safe remove.

Can you help with this problem?
